On 16/11/2016 the Danish Diabetes Academy announced on their website: "A new article published in BMC Cancer by Dr. Ari Meerson, a Danish Diabetes Academy Visiting Professor from MIGAL Galilee Research Institute in Israel, shows a novel mechanism that can explain how obesity and overweight, which change the balance of metabolic hormones, can increase the risk of colon cancer."
Dr. Meerson was awarded a Visiting Professorship from the Danish Diabetes Academy in 2015 and has visited Denmark several times to advance collaborative research. The experiments described in the article were performed at MIGAL by Dr. Meerson and Hila Yehuda. The article is available to view and download at the BMC Cancer website.
