Knut Mai focuses on the analysis of the interaction of metabolic processes and endocrinology. In the context of translationally designed clinical intervention studies, he examines mainly metabolic and endocrinological processes, which are based on the regulation of insulin sensitivity and body weight. With the use of various innovative methods of investigation in these human studies, he intends to provide a deeper insight into the interplay of skeletal muscle tissue and adipose tissue with regard to substrate utilization and further metabolic changes. The aim of the professorship is to gain a better understanding of the interaction of endocrine, metabolic and nutritive factors in the pathogenesis of diseases such as diabetes mellitus and its consequences.
