Obesity is a major risk factor for numerous chronic diseases including diabetes,
heart disease, hypertension and stroke, and certain forms of cancer. Globally,
there are more than 1 billion overweight adults, at least 300 million of them
obese. Thus, obesity represents one of the greatest social, medical and
economic challenges today. The “Flies to Humans - Novel Approaches for
Obesity and Diabetes” network integrates basic and clinical research that aims to
combine unique in vivo whole genome screening tools in a model organism with
clinical research in patients to identify novel regulators of obesity and lipid
metabolism. The ultimate goal of this proposal is to develop new diagnostic tools
and to identify potential new targets for novel therapeutic approaches in the
diagnosis and treatment of obesity and diabetes.
