|Endocrinology and Diabetes||Research is focused on different areas of endocrinology (in particular hyperandrogenism, thyroid diseases and adrenal diseases) and diabetes (in particular type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes). The main current research project is the "Verona PCOS Pathophysiology and Phenotype (Verona 3P) Study", which aims at better understanding the pathophysiology of polycystic ovary syndrome, and is characterized by accurate phenotyping of affected women as regards the hallmarks of this condition. In particular, gold standard methods are used in order to assess insulin resistance, androgens and body composition. Another area of current research focuses on the effects of physical activity in diabetes, as well as in other endocrine and metabolic diseases.||Endocrinology & Metabolism|
