In a video below, you can watch Susanne Mandrup, head of center at the recently launched DNRF center ATLAS, talk about her research on fat cells and genes (in Danish). The lecture was organized by the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters.

On March 19, Susanne Mandrup, the head of the recently opened DNRF Center for Functional Genomics and Tissue Plasticity (ATLAS), held a public lecture about her research on genes and fat cells at the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters.

Fat cells have fascinated Professor Mandrup for more than 25 years. In the lecture, she explained why it is so important to study these types of cells and their importance for our health. The lecture can be viewed below through the YouTube channel of the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters (in Danish):

In the coming years, the primary purpose of ATLAS is to obtain a cell type and time-resolved understanding of hepatic and adipose tissue plasticity in response to metabolic stress, in particular, diet-induced obesity.
