Discovering The Developmental Origins of Obesity

The Polish Academy of Sciences in Olsztyn, Poland



Funding from the Welcome project has enabled us to build a team of fourteen young scientists to achieve 2 overlapping goals. The first goal is to build a team of young scientists with multiple levels of experience to provide the range of scientific expertise and energy that will allow us to contribute to the understanding of a current, complex problem in obesity. The second goal is to train a critical mass of young researchers who will form the base of a continuing long term program of research in obesity and diabetes within Poland centered at the Polish Academy of Sciences in Olsztyn.
