Identifying biomarkers for pain with obesity-dependent diabetes

Project Details


The aim is to identify novel biomarkers, and ultimately drug targets for the alleviation of painful diabetic neuropathy. Serum samples collected from rats with obesity-dependent diabetes (currently stored at -80) will be processed on an cytokine Array to measure expression of 60 different cytokines. The funds will be used to buy consumables and fund an RA to carry out the work.
