1. Core-box Modelling - Theoretical Contributions and Applications to Glucose Homeostasis Related Systems
Sammanfattning : The study of biological systems through a combination of in vitro characterisations, quantitative in vivo experiments, and mathematical modelling, is receiving an increasingly growing interest through the field system biology. Systems biology uses methods from many different research fields, but the existing methods need to be extended and adapted to fit the new situations. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Thermochemical systems appear in applications as widespread as in combustion engines, in industrial chemical plants and inside biological cells. Science in all these areas is going towards a more model based thinking, and it is therefore important to develop good methods for system identification, especially fit for these kind of systems.

Sammanfattning : Obesity and a sedentary life style are associated with type 2 diabetes, a disease starting with insulin resistance in the adipose tissue, which spreads to the whole body. Despite large research efforts to understand the insulin signaling system, there is little knowledge of the mechanisms behind insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes developments. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Narcolepsy is a chronic sleep disorder, characterised by excessive daytime sleepiness with frequent uncontrollable sleep attacks. In addition to sleeprelated problems, changes in cognition have also been observed in patients with narcolepsy and has been linked to the loss of Orexin-A in a number of studies. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The liver is one of the largest organs within the human body and it handles many vital tasks such as nutrient processing, toxin removal, and synthesis of important proteins. The number of people suffering from chronic liver disease is on the rise, likely due to the present ‘western’ lifestyle. LÄS MER
