The Diabetes and Metabolic Associated Diseases Research Group (DIAMET) is a multidisciplinary and dynamic research group focused on the study of metabolic derangements associated to diabetes mellitus and obesity morbidities.


The research group is leaded by Dr. Sonia Fernandez-Veledo and is composed by clinical and basic investigators, technicians and administrative support staff.


The group belongs to the Pere Virgily Institute (IISPV) and University Hospital from Tarragona Joan XXIII, and is integrated in a nationwide net for the study of diabetes, CIBERdem, that was initiated in 2008 by the Instituto de Salud Carlos III from Spain. Likewise, the group is recognised as a consolidated group by the Agencia de Gestió d’Ajuts Universitaris i de Recerca (AGAUR) from the Generalitat de Catalunya since 2009, housed in the Rovira i Virgili University.


The group has wide experience in undergraduates, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows training, both in clinical and basic science. Research tools and the education at the bench are coached by experienced senior post-doctoral investigators. The group integrates investigators from different competitive prestigious programs such as Miguel Servet and Ramón y Cajal tenure track positions, post-doctoral junior grants (Sara Borrell and Juan de la Cierva) and Río Hortega specialised healthcare post-training contracts. Additionally, the group has established fellowship-training programs in foreign labs of prestigious research groups in Europe and USA.
