New genes linked to diabetes

An international group of scientists - including several at the University - has identified a set of genes that control the body’s response to glucose in the blood.

The discovery of these new genes influencing blood sugar levels is the first step on the important journey to developing new therapies for diabetes. Genetic studies like this open the door onto disease mechanisms and pathways we have no other way of discovering, and which are the raw material for intelligent drug design.
