Marcel den Hoed (Uppsala University/SciLifeLab) is a co-applicant of a project that was recently awarded a grant from the American NIH. The project will address the link between obesity and cardiometabolic complications and is a collaboration between researchers from USA, UK and Sweden.
The project, led by Ruth Loos at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York City, aims to increase our understanding of the link between adiposity and cardiometabolic complications. The research team will investigate the paradox that some obese individuals are protected from metabolic complications longer than expected based on their adiposity level, while some normal weight individuals suffer from such complications. With this, they hope to better understand the biology that underlies glucose and lipid metabolism, and provide new targets for therapeutic strategies and diagnostic/prognostic biomarkers.
Marcel den Hoed’s subcontract of the NIH grant is 467,445 USD over four years.
