Biological rhythms and the dopamine system in cognitive dysfunction

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia are associated with metabolic syndrome, obesity and diabetes. Schizophrenia affects 1.1% of the population and although not the most common psychiatric condition it is arguably the most severe and debilitating. Read more

PhD candidate - Origin of Obesity and Metabolic Disorders in Childhood (f/m/x)

We are Helmholtz Munich. In a rapidly changing world, we discover breakthrough solutions for better health. Our research is focused within the areas of metabolic health/diabetes, environmental health, molecular targets and therapies, cell programming and repair, bioengineering, and computational health.

Using nutrigenetic, nutrigenomic and machine learning approaches to investigate the risk of cardiometabolic disease-related traits in ethnically diverse populations.

This PhD project represents an exciting opportunity to develop and conduct research at the forefront of nutritional and genetic epidemiology, contributing to the prediction, prevention, and better understanding of the development of non-communicable diseases such as obesity and diabetes, using datasets from multiple ethnic groups.

Trusted AI for Diabetes personalised self-management systems

Diabetes mellitus is a common cause of morbidity and mortality across the globe. Type 2 diabetes continues to rise in prevalence annually; from 1980 to 2004, Type 2 quadrupled in both prevalence and incidence [1]. This will be exacerbated further by the increase in obesity. Read more

Effect of obesity on bone strength and implication on the risk of hip fracture

There is a clear and unmet need to address the diagnosis of hip fracture risk associated with osteoporosis. Whereas low weight is a well-documented risk factor for future bone fractures, a high body weight seems to protect against hip fracture. Read more

Exploring cardio-renal-metabolic interactions in patients with heart failure

Recent years have highlighted the connections and shared pathophysiology between heart failure, renal impairment, diabetes and obesity, particularly with the evidence of benefit in all of these areas with SGLT2 inhibitors and GLP1-receptor agonists. Read more

Identifying cognitive and biochemical changes underlying lifestyle risk factors for dementia

  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
Dementia describes a group of age-associated conditions of which cognitive decline is a major feature. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and is characterised by the onset of a gradual cognitive decline. Read more

Neuronal control of appetite: investigating the role of the extracellular matrix in controlling neuronal activity in the hypothalamus

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Appetite regulation is complex, and its dysregulation has serious implications for health, being observed in multiple conditions e.g., obesity, anorexia, and type 2 diabetes. Read more
