The FAT Action Group
The FATaction group is interested in conditions associated with defects in the regulation of lipid metabolism such as obesity, dyslipidemias, fatty liver, gluco-lipotoxicity and cardio-vascular disease. Many different competences, both with regard to techniques and research areas, can be found in the group as is illustrated in Fig.1. One important approach is to focus on novel genes associated with dysregulated lipid metabolism with regard to gene-diet interactions and expression/functional studies.
