Tromsø Endocrine Research Group

Tromsø Endocrine Research Group focuses on a variety of endocrinologic research questions. A main focus area is steroid hormones, historically through a combined approach of epidemiological, laboratory and RCT studies on effects of vitamin D. In recent years the focus has been expanded to include adrenal hormones and sex hormones with a goal of building up a platform for studies on reproductive health, based on data collections like Fit Futures. We have a strong laboratory platform when it comes to both mass spectrometric methods for hormone measurements as well as endocrine disruptive chemicals (EDCs) through the collaboration with The Environmental Pollutant Laboratory at the Department of Laboratory Medicine, UNN Tromsø, which facilitates studies on effects of EDCs on endocrine health.
