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 multiple physiological processes. A precise understanding of hormonal control in animal and human (patho-)physiology provides insight into fundamental biological processes, but also gives rationales for novel treatment options for general immune-metabolic and skeletal diseases.

The Institute hosts the following Research Groups:
