Chronic Kidney Disease and Transplantation Research Group

About the Chronic Kidney Disease and Transplantation Research Group

Type 2 diabetes is a metabolic syndrome is caused by the development of insulin resistance, which is normally a consequence of chronic obesity. Diabetes enhances the inflammatory response, causing additional tissue damage to a number of organs including the heart, kidney, eye and nervous system. We aim for a greater understanding of the inflammatory process during type 2 diabetes, and its complications.
