Beta-JUDO

The Beta-JUDO (Beta-cell function in juvenile diabetes and obesity) project is initiated by Uppsala University and is a European Collaborative Project of the Seventh Framework Programme.

The aim of Beta-JUDO is to identify novel strategies reducing insulin hypersecretion in young obese individuals. Partners in the consortium are pediatric obesity clinics and academic centres with focus on beta-cell biology, brown adipocyte imaging, transcript and protein profiling, genetics, epidemiology and bioinformatics, one large drug company, one small and medium enterprise specialized on biomarker discovery and SCRO, specialized on clinical studies.

SCRO will coordinate the multi-center clinical study within the project, which will be performed at the Uppsala University Hospital, the Paracelsus Medical University of Salzburg and the University of Leipzig.
