Research New research on the blood lipid-lowering protein FGF21 shows how it redistributes fatty acids by two distinct mechanisms. The discovery could lead to improved pharmaceutical treatment for type 2 diabetes and other obesity-related diseases. This according to a new study published in the journal Cell Metabolism.
Lecture Professor Charles Cockell from Edinburgh University will visit Umeå’s Observatory Umevatoriet and Umeå University with two lectures on the search for life in Universe. The lectures form the start of a series of events on the space theme in Umeå aimed at children and adults alike.
