Forskning

Ola Hansson. PhD. Associate professor (Docent) of functional genomics at Lund University and head of the research unit Genomics, Diabetes and Endocrinology, Malmö, Sweden. Main research interest is to understand how genetic variation influences skeletal muscle function and whole-body metabolism - implications primarily for human health, but also for fundamental evolutionary questions. The overarching goal is to tailor, for the individual, the most beneficial exercise program to counteract genetic predisposition to metabolic disease and type 2 diabetes. We use translational approaches and regularly conduct focused intervention studies in humans, including skeletal muscle biopsies. From the biopsies, muscle stem cells (satellite cells) are isolated and later used for preclinical measurements. In our projects we combine physiological measurements like VO2MAX, muscular strength and glucose tolerance with preclinical, e.g. RNA and ChIP sequencing, fibre typing, gene knock down and exon skipping.
