Professor Per-Henrik Groop, MD, DMSc, FRCPE graduated from the University of Helsinki in 1982. It was here where he defended his thesis on 'The relationship between GIP and beta-cell function in man' in 1989. Following post-doctoral studies at Guy’s Hospital, University of London, under Professor Giancarlo Viberti, Professor Groop returned to Helsinki as a Consultant of Nephrology. He served as Professor of Nephrology (Chair) 2010-2015 and is currently Professor of Internal Medicine (Chair) at the University of Helsinki. He is also Chief Physician at the Abdominal Center Nephrology, University of Helsinki and Helsinki University Hospital and Principal Investigator of the Finnish Diabetic Nephropathy (FinnDiane) Study at the Folkhalsan Research Center in Helsinki, Finland. He is an Adjunct Professor at the Department of Diabetes, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.

His research is focused on the dissection of the pathogenesis of diabetic complications with special emphasis on diabetic nephropathy. In order to provide a unique set of clinical resources with high power to identify genes and genetic variants associated with diabetic complications, Professor Groop initiated the large, nationwide FinnDiane Study in 1997. To date, this landmark study comprises 8400 patients with Type 1 Diabetes and their family members recruited via a comprehensive network of 92 hospitals and healthcare centers throughout Finland. His FinnDiane Research Group represents an interdisciplinary team of 45 scientists, post-graduate students, and personnel.
