Hans Jörnvall’s research centers on three fields: peptide hormones; dehydrogenases and reductases (important in alcoholism, metabolism, differentiation-related diseases and in cortisone activation); and proteomics and cancer marker analysis centering on mass spectrometry, expression in prostate, endometrial, and colorectal cancer. He collaborated with Bert Vallee, whom he had met in 1973, for some 25 years and came often to work in his lab, including his VVP sabbatical in 2005.
