Jonatan Ising Bagger is a clinician and researcher at the Center for Diabetes Research, Herlev Gentofte Hospital, University of Copenhagen. His research interests include the physiological and pathophysiological aspects of diabetes focused on the gut-mediated regulation of metabolism through gut hormones, in particular gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP), glucagon‐like peptide‐1 (GLP-1) and glucagon, as well as the regulation of the incretin effect in patients with type 2 diabetes.
He has been a significant part of the Center for Diabetes Research for the past 10 years and has successfully supervised PhD and pre-graduate students. The group has provided evidence for new and important pathophysiological traits of type 2 diabetes, and their research has changed the concept of the disease from a former ‘pancreacentric’ view towards a pivotal role of the gut. Dr Bagger is Board member and Founder of North European Young Diabetologists, Denmark.
