Metabolic Research Unit

Our research approach

We have a strong platform in cell culture and molecular biology, which allows us to focus on the pre-clinical development of new drugs.

Disease development
We use cutting-edge techniques to discover the factors that lead to obesity and type 2 diabetes.

Compounds for treatment
Using knowledge about the diseases, we investigate novel compounds that may be developed as drugs to treat them.


Our researchers

We have an experienced team of researchers at MRU, each with unique and shared research themes.
