AKC seminar: Organ cross-talk: Using flies to unravel hormonal circuits controlling energy balance

Kenneth HalbergAugust Krogh Seminar

Associate Professor Kenneth Halberg

Section for Cell and Neurobiology, Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen.


Animals strive to maintain a constant internal environment as they interact with their habitat. This is achieved by adjusting the activity of specialized organs to oppose perturbations and restore balance towards and optimal set-point. This coordination is controlled by a complex network of neurohormones that is activated by cues related to internal deviations. 

Research Profile

Dr. Halberg graduated with a Master’s and a PhD degree in physiology with Nadja Møbjerg from the “August Krogh Institute” at University of Copenhagen. He was a postdoctoral fellow with Julian Dow at University of Glasgow from 2013-2016.

Upon returning in 2016 to University of Copenhagen, Dr. Halberg became a Villum Young Investigator and Sapere Aude group leader at the section of Cell and Neurobiology where he became a tenured Associate Professor in 2023.
