Members of the institute are at the forefront of Research into the causes and treatment of obesity, appetite regulation, genetic mapping of obesity genes, surgical outcome and psychological wellbeing following surgery.

“Why are some people prone to weight gain when others seem to be protected?”

“Why don’t diets seem to work for most people?”

“What is the best strategy for preventing obesity spreading to future generations?”

“How does bariatric surgery work to reset peoples weight to a healthy level and can it help us to develop non-surgical treatments for obesity?”

These are just some of the questions that The Institute of Obesity and Metabolism are aiming to help answer.
