Centre for Obesity Research

The goal of the Centre for Obesity Research is to understand the pathophysiology of obesity and type 2 diabetes in order to identify new preventative and therapeutic strategies.
The Centre is internationally renowned for leading the field of gut hormone research. Ongoing research programmes combine basic science with studies in healthy human volunteers and obese and type 2 diabetic patients. Human studies are underpinned by detailed phenotyping including gut hormone profiling and functional brain imaging coupled with genetics, with the aim of developing personalised therapeutic strategies.
