Nutrition, Obesity and Diabetes

Obesity, which has reached epidemic proportions globally, is linked to type 2 diabetes. Diet and exercise are critical components of managing both disorders.

PCOM researchers are conducting epidemiological, behavioral, dietary, physiological, pharmacological and molecular analyses to identify vulnerable populations and risk factors, and develop novel approaches to reduce obesity and diabetes.
