The overall theme of my research focuses primarily upon the antidiabetic potential of both receptor agonists and antagonists of the gut hormones glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). From this I intend to deduce the clinical importance of these peptide hormones for the treatment of obesity-related type 2 diabetes and its associated metabolic disorders.
