Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research > About us


Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research is a center of excellence where a team of talented researchers and experienced laboratory technicians is bringing scientific discoveries from laboratory to society in an effort to tackle some of today’s biggest global challenges – diabetes and obesity.

We are proud of the outstanding discoveries made by the Center, and we are committed to the translation of this knowledge into novel approaches to patient care.


The close interdisciplinary collaboration between more than 100 skilled scientists through six scientific sections is one of our unique strengths, enabling us to discover more effective strategies to prevent, control and, ultimately, cure metabolic diseases.

By committing ourselves to innovative research, by being home to two state-of-the-art core facilities, by fostering knowledge and education, we are striving to create a unique environment within a great university and a prominent health care system.
