    Diabetes/obesity

    Clinical Research Centre and Department of Endocrinology, Diabetology and Internal Medicine at the MUB conduct several research projects in which novel omics technologies are applied to study diabetes and obesity. Following projects could be conducted by PhD students: a) Diet as a treatment and prevention of diabetes and obesity in the light of individual genetic predisposition; b) Physical activity as a treatment and prevention of diabetes and obesity in the light of individual genetic predisposition; c) Bariatric surgery as a treatment of diabetes and obesity; d) Searching for prospective and early biomarkers of type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes with use of novel omics approaches; e) Personalized medicine in the treatment of diabetes and obesity. PhD students will be involved in conduction of diet and physical activity interventions. Moreover, they will learn how to perform genetic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomic analyses including sample and data treatment.
