The University of Leeds and the Leeds Teaching Hospital Trust are home to one of the largest, most vibrant and successful cardio metabolic research, training and treatment centres in the UK. The institute’s research covers many aspects of the cardio metabolic topic and includes research excellence in critical biology and technology: vascular mechanical sensation, vascular insulin sensitivity, blood-clot structure and platelet biology, imaging, and patient data analysis.
Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche
The National Research Council of Italy (CNR) is the largest Italian public research organization, counting 109 institutes and more than 6000 researchers. Its mission is to carry out, promote, spread, transfer and improve research activities in the main sectors of knowledge and their applications for the scientific, technological, economic and social development.
National Center for Scientific Research “Demokritos” (DEMO)
DEMO hosts a small animal laboratory and those facilities are unique in Greece. Laboratory facilities include hot cells and hoods for the safe handling & radiochemical processing of γ, β and positron emitters, as well as a hot lab for the synthesis of radiolabelled compounds. Evaluation of radiolabeled compounds is performed by high-tech equipment dedicated to this purpose (HPLC, electronic autoradiography system, capillary electrophoresis system, gel electrophoresis system, optical microscope).
Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC)
The Catalysis Institute belongs to the main National Public Research Institution in Spain (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas), International level research in catalysis, biocatalysis and other research areas.
