Project: ENERGISE - Targeting energy metabolism to combat cardiovascular disease. CVON (September 2015 - September 2019)  

Project introduction: Global obesity prevalences are spiralling out of control and are expected to offset the improvements in cardiovascular disease frequency made in the past four decades, since there are strong links between metabolic health and cardiovascular disease. Sofar energy metabolism and fat turnover have been insufficiently exploited as targets to improve cardiometabolic health and combat cardiovascular disease.   

Project aim: To identify and characterise novel molecular targets that can be exploited to enhance energy metabolism and improve cardiometabolic risk parameter
