RHAPSODY - "Risk Assessment and Progression of Diabetes"

The RHAPSODY project aims at identifying, characterizing and validating biomarkers for onset of diabetes / diabetes progression in order to enable disease modification.  By combining clinical and genetic data from several European cohorts, changes in glucose metabolism before and after diabetes onset will be assessed in order to establish biomarkers of glucose dysregulation potential involvement of genetic factors. 
RHAPSODY involves several academic and industrial partners, where SDCC works particularly with the Lund University Diabetes Centre, (Malmö, Sweden), the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (Lausanne, Switzerland) and Novo Nordisk (Måløv, Denmark).
