Epidemiology

We conduct epidemiological studies based on our patient cohorts and the extensive Scandinavian population-wide registries. These studies discover associations which, in turn, generate hypotheses for further research in the lab. In one of our epidemiological studies, we showed that a certain type of antidiabetic medication, which promotes mitochondrial biogenesis, is associated with a decreased incidence of Parkinson disease. This has fuelled further research into the therapeutic potential of mitochondria-targeting agents.
