METACARDIS (Metagenomics in Cardiometabolic Diseases) is a European project coordinated by Inserm that aims to study the role of the gut microbiota in the development of cardiometabolic diseases (CMDs). Thanks to the support of the European Commission, fourteen partners in six European countries will work together over a five-year period to translate the results obtained with novel CMD diagnosis and treatment methods and pave the way for personalised medicine in CMDs. Researchers and clinicians from the Institute of Cardiometabolism and Nutrition (ICAN) will also be involved in the METACARDIS project.
