Study Of How Fat Cells Differ Between Healthy Volunteer And People With Type 2 Diabetes

Description

Seeking men and women who are willing to donate fat cells for a study of the difference between fat cells collected from healthy volunteers and people who have type 2 diabetes.

Overview

We are studying fat cells collected from the bellies and backsides of healthy volunteers and people with type 2 diabetes to look for differences that might explain what causes diabetes and obesity. Participants will donate fat cells collected using a needle and syringe from their belly and their backside.

What we're hoping for

We hope to better understand what causes diabetes and obesity by collecting and analyzing fat cells from healthy volunteers and people who have type 2 diabetes.
