Colloque "Searching for new biomarkers for type 2 diabetes: a translational approach"

Titre  Searching for new biomarkers for type 2 diabetes: a translational approach
Résumé

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is characterized by chronically high blood glucose levels that can lead to serious complications such as cardiovascular disease, kidney failure and blindness.

In this seminar, the lecturer will describe from a computational biology perspective, a recent large European study seeking to bridge the gap between mouse models of T2D and human disease to try to find biomarkers for early disease detection.

One of the outcomes of the study was the discovery that a particular class of lipid was elevated in the plasma of individuals several years before T2D diagnosis. Lipids of this class may therefore represent prognostic biomarkers for early detection of T2D.
