Diabetes and Heart Disease Research Unit is focusing mainly on
- genetic studies of type 2 diabetes,
- congenital hyperinsulinemia,
- early onset atherosclerosis and
- inherited heart diseases (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, dilated cardiomyopathy).
The Unit will get DNA samples from large multicenter international studies for DNA analyses (for example STOP-NIDDM trial and the DIGAMI2 trial).
We provide diagnostic tests for monogenic diseases and farmacogenomics – see our gene diagnostics page.
