Genetic Markers of Vascular Disease: A Population-Based Study.

£99840 for a Trust administered through Tenovus Tayside.


Previous research of diabetic patients in Tayside has shown that there are large differences in the susceptibility to complications between individuals with type 2 diabetes that cannot be explained completely by lifestyle. We are studying the genes of people with diabetes in Tayside in order to understand how the disease affects some people more dramatically than others.
