Obesity, an enormous and growing problem across the globe, is fundamental to bodily health. Obesity related complications can take all kinds of forms, one of the most prevalent and serious is the possibility of the onset of type 2 diabetes. The Michigan program will pull together doctors and scientists in a groundbreaking combination.
The wealth of medical talent will be brought together in one lab, which will be called the U-M Metabolomics and Obesity Center. Online, researchers will be able to communicate and pool data. Both new moves could give the group more potential to draw in grants, experts said.
Obesity, although it is widely studied, suffers from a vast spread of research occurring at different rates scattered across the globe. To make any headway in combating the disease, an effective and combined strategy such as that being coordinated is essential. For diabetics, the news is positive.
