Research programmes

Peri-operative Metabolism and Allergy

- We study all aspects of perioperative metabolism in patients with and without diabetes mellitus, with the focus on clinical studies that can be translated into clinical practice.

-In addition we have set up a perioperative allergy and anafylaxis clinical research programme
