Research subject

The metabolic syndrome is a cluster of metabolic risk factors associated with elevated risk of disease. The research project aims to determine the role played by physical activity and dietary habits in the development of the metabolic syndrome in middle aged and elderly men and women. We also aim to develop in-vitro approaches to study the mechanisms involved in the development of the metabolic syndrome.
