Medical genetics of obesity and skeletal disorders

Welcome to the website of our research team on Medical Genetics of obesity and skeletal disorders (MGENOS).

Our research aims are to contribute to the unravelling of genetic causes for obesity and disorders affecting the skeleton.  This includes  monogenic conditions but we also have a special interest in complex, multifactorial forms of obesity and osteoporosis.

We are one of the medical genetic research teams within the Center of Medical Genetics and we are affiliated with the facuclty of Pharmaceutical, Biomedical and Veterinary Sciences of the University of Antwerp.
