This DataShare Collection contains data published by researchers who are members of the Metabolism Obesity and Diabetes Theme (MOD) at the University of Edinburgh/BHF Centre for Cardiovascular Science. The MOD group brings together clinical and basic scientists with an interest in the physiology and pathophysiology of metabolic processes relevant to obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Our research covers: • Developmental processes (e.g. in utero effects; adipose cell lineage and heterogeneity), • Genetics – including utilisation of model organisms • Epigenetics and gene regulation • Mature cell function and pathogenesis (e.g. insulin resistance; insulin secretion, inflammation; hypoxia; and steroid metabolism) • Regeneration and transplant of organs that are central to metabolic homeostasis We have a particular interest in adipose tissue distribution and function and also study integrated metabolism of the liver, heart, kidney, muscle, pancreatic islets and lymphoid tissue. Our aim of the Metabolism is to act as a forum for cross-disciplinary collaborations aimed at understanding and ultimately treating cardio-metabolic diseases.
