Diabetes Mellitus and Cardiovascular Diseases

 

Description:

It studies the epidemiology of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, seeking to quantify its frequency and its burden of morbidity and mortality, as well as to identify its risk and prognostic factors. In the research process, causal models are proposed for these diseases, aiming to test them and refine them with statistical models. The research line also develops and evaluates actions to prevent diabetes and its complications and other related chronic diseases.
