Cecilia Lindgren is spearheading efforts to advance the understanding of mechanisms involved in obesity with a focus on central fat accumulation. Harnessing state-of-the-art big data and genomic approaches, her group is working on the identification of genetic variants associated with obesity and their functional consequences. This line of research may ultimately lead to novel diagnostic and therapeutic options for the management of obesity.
