HelP-T2D: Helminth products for Type 2 Diabetes
HelP-T2D (Helminth Products for Type 2 Diabetes) is a ZonMW-funded pre-clinical project aimed to:
- investigate the beneficial effects of helminth-derived molecules in the context of metabolic disorders, such as
– insulin resistance
– type 2 diabetes
- to elucidate their underlying molecular mechanism(s) of action.
The HelP-T2D project has started on April 1st, 2015. The kick-off meeting took place in Leiden, The Netherlands, on April 10th, 2015. Within the project researchers from two universities are working together. During the meeting the goals of the project and the planning for activities in the coming year will be discussed.
