Jakob Knudsen


Novo Nordisk Postdoctoral Research Fellow

I hold an MSc in cellular biology and physiology from the University of Copenhagen where I also obtained my PhD in molecular physiology. My PhD dissertation focused on the role of skeletal muscle as an endocrine organ and its role in the regulation of metabolism in response to acute exercise and exercise training.

I came to Oxford in September 2015 to start my Novo Nordisk Postdoctoral Research Fellowship with Professor Patrik Rorsman at the Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology & Metabolism. My current research is focused on the role of TCA cycle regulation in the development of diabetes and its co-morbidities. This fellowship provides me with the opportunity to use and further develop my understanding of metabolic adaptations and regulation beyond the scope of exercise training and gives me an opportunity to develop new skills within imaging, omics and cell biology.
