MetSNet is a network of research teams from the University of Patras with a common interest in the study of the molecular mechanisms associated with the development of metabolic syndrome.
The groups of MetSNet possess a wide variety of different technical and scinetific expertise that allow an interdisciplinary approach in the undestanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying the development and interrelation of the components of metabolic syndrome. Currently, more principal investigators from various University Departments have already expressed interest in joining MetSNet.
Our view is that MetSNet is part of the local community and as such we are obliged to maintain a constant communication with the broader public. Thus, in addition to our research tasks, we have designed a number of dissemination activities for the broader public. We sincerely hope you enjoy your visit. The medical doctors of the network along with psycologists, dieticians and peronal trainers organize information compains on this topic.
We envision our network as a reference point for the study and prevention of metabolic syndrome.
