Diabetes, Cardiovascular Risk and Ageing
Diabetes and associated metabolic conditions are among the most important medical challenges facing the world today. PCMD has developed a particular strength in this area with researchers focusing on the causes of diabetes, the mechanisms of disease and improved treatments for patients.
Research in this area is wide ranging from genetic analysis of different forms of diabetes, the molecular biology or islet cells in the pancreas and endothelial cells. To exploring the mechanisms of complications such as blood vessel damage causing diabetic eye and kidney problems, to developing practical, simple and cost effective ways of identifying patients with undetected diabetes in primary care and clinical trials
