New opportunities are offered by modern treatments and novel pathways responsible for the development vascular disease in patients with diabetes are under investigation. The research project will set the general objective to elucidate the mechanisms that drive cardiovascular risk in diabetes and explore the biological basis underlying myocardial and vascular damage associated with dysmetabolism.
