Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research > About us > Vision


In 2017, the Center will relocate into the new Maersk Tower:

The vision of the Center is to be an international hub of excellence in interdisciplinary basic metabolic research. Our aim is to discover fundamental metabolic processes that underpin the development of novel diagnostics and prevention/treatment strategies for important metabolic diseases, which will be transformative to ‘society-at-large’.

The central focus on basic metabolic research is currently complemented by a strong translational ethos through collaborations with specialized clinical units such as the new Steno Diabetes Center, Copenhagen.
