In 1887, Torup went on study tours to foreign physiological laboratories, including Leipzig and Paris.
In 1890, on the recommendation of H. Bohr, he received the position of professor of physiology at the physiological institute at the University of Frederick Christiania (Oslo). Soon he headed the institute and held this post for more than 40 years.
Being a specialist in nutrition, Torup took part in the equipment of all the major Norwegian expeditions, starting with the expedition of F. Nansen. The superbly designed power system was one of the key factors that ensured the success of the expedition. According to many members of the expedition, they did not eat so well even at home.
Scientific work Torup combined with teaching.
Thanks to his erudition, eloquence, elegance, well-delivered
voice, his lectures enjoyed great success.
Torup was a member of many several scientific societies.
