Open season on obesity
January 2016
SHARING OPTIONS:

DANVILLE, Pa.—A team of scientists from Geisinger Health System, Penn State University and the University of Pennsylvania recently received a $4.4-million, four-year research grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Health for obesity research. This project is part of the “Big Data in Health Research” effort established by Pennsylvania’s Commonwealth Universal Research Enhancement Program. The team will study a number of conditions linked to obesity, including nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and degenerative joint disease. The team will also look into the mechanisms of the effects obesity has on the progression, recurrence and survival rates of patients with endometrial cancer. This project will also include internship training opportunities for undergraduate and graduate minority students in the use of bioinformatics and computer technology for the management of biological information, with a further goal of developing a two-year learning opportunity for post-baccalaureate minority students.
