Veranstaltungsbeginn: 10.12.15 11:00
On December 10th, 2015 Prof. Cornelis Calkhoven from the ERIBA Groningen, will give a talk in the Multimedia Room, N27/ 2059 at 11:00 a.m. Talk title:


The Institute of Comparative Molecular Endocrinology is devoted to basic research unravelling mechanisms of the hormonal control of stress-, ageing and life style related disorders. In our ageing society immune-metabolic disorders, and muskulo-skeletal impairments evolve to a general health problem. The action of hormones of the stress axis, and regulators of mineral homeostasis modulate the underlying multiple organ cross-talk in this body homeostasis. A precise understanding of hormonal control in animal and human physiology provides insight into fundamental biological processes, but also gives rationales for novel treatment options for general immune-metabolic and skeletal diseases.

In the institute four Research Labs address the following topics::

In May 2016 a new Research Lab will be established in our Institute:
