Research areas

Nils J. Færgeman is professor and director of the molecular metabolism and metabolomics unit at The Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry at University of Southern Denmark. His research interests revolve around how metazoans sense alterations in the environment and in their genome and how they adapt metabolism to maintain cellular homeostasis, promote survival and achieve balanced growth. His group takes a systems biology-wide approach and combines genomics, proteomics and metabolomics to untangle novel mechanisms regulating metabolism.
