Rooted in the Gut-Brain Axis

Gubra is an abbreviation for GUt and BRAin, the original key focus areas of our research and expertise. We believe that the next great leap forward in treatment paradigms within obesity, diabetes and related metabolic disorders will be found in the interplay of the gut and the brain.

A better understanding of the gut-brain axis will reveal the aetiology of diabetes, obesity and related metabolic disorders and guide us towards novel future treatments of today’s unmed medical needs.
