Diabetes and Obesity

Obesity and diabetes are increasingly a burden in modern populations, and whilst the contributions of our lifestyles are well-known, other aspects of the conditions are less clear. Our podcasts on diabetes and obesity highlight the work of our scientists and clinicians to understand the underlying factors of lifestyle and metabolism, molecular and genetic mechanisms, and less common forms of diabetes, to improve management and treatment of these conditions.
