The Genetic Obesity Project is dedicated to improving the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of severe obesity that is caused by specific genetic defects–particularly rare genetic disorders that result in life-threatening obesity.
Single genetic defects along the MC4 pathway that result in early-onset and severe obesity are now identified.
