MOVING FROM BIOMARKERS TO MECHANISM ORIENTED PREVENTION OF CARDIOMETABOLIC DISEASE

Project description

Preventive strategies against cardiometabolic diseases

Obesity and diabetes affect cardiovascular health and contribute to the development of cardiometabolic diseases (CMD). To prevent CMD occurrence, the EU-funded PREVENT-2024 project proposes to develop interventions for people with established endocrine abnormalities. These will be based on molecules that exhibit deregulation in obesity and diabetes, namely the hormone neurotensin, vasopressin and adrenomedullin. Scientists will evaluate strategies that inhibit the upregulation and control the levels of these molecules in animal models and human clinical trials. Alongside data from omics studies, the project results will help predict and prevent CMD.
