Fish Endocrinology Laboratory (FEL)

The Fish Endocrinology Laboratory (FEL) is an established (since 1989) research group conducting research within the broad area of integrative physiology and endocrinology of fish.

The endocrine research focuses primarily on the control of appetite, metabolism, growth and development, encompassing hormones such as growth hormone, insulin-like growth factor I, ghrelin, leptin and thyroid hormones, as well as their receptors and binding proteins. T

The group also has a strong profile in gastrointestinal physiology, carrying out research on intestinal transport mechanisms for ions and nutrients, as well as the function of the gut as a barrier against pathogens. Thus, a special focus is placed on epithelial immunology.

The research is fundamental in nature, aiming at understanding basic physiological processes and regulatory mechanisms. However, many of the research projects aim at using this knowledge to solve aquaculture-related problems.

The group has a strong international collaborative profile and welcomes discussions on collaborative research. The research is currently funded by Swedish, Norwegian and Icelandic funding agencies as well as the European Union.
