Fighting The Obesity Epidemic

A waste of money.
Research into diabetes and obesity at the University of Bergen (UiB) gets a major boost with one of these Advanced Grants from the European Research Council (ERC). The project is led by professor and paediatrician Pål Rasmus Njølstad at UiB's Department of Clinical Medicine.

He and his team have been studying genes that could be associated with obesity and diabetes. With the aid of the ongoing Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study (MoBa), Njølstad and his team now wish to dig deeper into this research. Through their research, they are collecting biological material and survey data from more than 100,000 pregnancies.

Expensive research

Without the grant from ERC it would not be possible to do this research. It is very expensive to conduct this research and surveys in such an extensive study.
Not to mention useless, too.
