Cardiovascular and Metabolism
Scientists in the Metabolic Disease Area are looking for novel treatments for abnormalities in metabolism and associated diseases.
- diabetes (disordered carbohydrate metabolism)
- dyslipidaemia (disordered fat metabolism)
- anaemia (shortage of red blood cells or low haemoglobin) and other renal diseases
- osteoporosis (loss of bone minerals).
Cardiovascular disease is often grouped with metabolic disorders because it is frequently a consequence of diabetes and dyslipidemia.
