The EpiMigrant Project is concerned with the identification of epigenetic markers underlying increased risk of Type 2 diabetes in South Asians.

It focuses on understanding the lifestyle, environmental, genetic and epigenetic factors causing variations in prevalence and incidence of T2D, in the leading world-wide resources of well characterised South Asian populations, who show increasing levels of T2D risk when migrating from rural to urban settings and countries overseas. 

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 279143.
