PhysioPod catch up with Ramin Shayan, Associate Professor at University of Melbourne, Australia

PhysioPod catch up with Ramin Shayan, Associate Professor at University of Melbourne, Australia Background: Last year, PhysioPod shared the important new study “New discoveries make steps toward lipoedema diagnosis and treatment,” published in the International Journal of Obesity, which Dr. Tara Karnezis and Associate Professor Ramin Shayan led. The study identified a stem cell in lipoedema and a gene that drives excess fat growth – elements key to diagnosing and treating the condition. Dr. Karnezis said of the study, “Our findings confirm, consistent with the lived experience of families, that lipoedema is a legitimate medical condition, and that it is not the same as obesity – our team has identified a key stem cell and some of the genetic and molecular mechanisms that underpin it.”

Well, the answer is pretty easy – I’m human too.
