Diabesity Working Group

About us

Diabesity is the ERA Working Group aiming at creating and disseminating knowledge on the Nephrological Impact in relation to Diabetes and Obesity.

European research in this field is already of very high quality. However, the magnitude of the problem requires strong and multinational collaborations between teams specialized in different aspects of diabetes and obesity (basic and clinical). This can help the interchange of knowledge and skills between established scientists in the field.

By combining various local expertise, EU collaboration could additionally benefit translational and cross-functional research on renal consequences of Diabesity. Finally, this collaborative effort should transfer to better communication between research, patients and society.
