OCRC – the Obesity and Comorbidities Research Center – is one of the twenty Research, Innovation and Dissemination Centers (RIDC) supported by FAPESP (Foundation for Research Support of the State of São Paulo), and is active since June 2013.

OCRC coordinates scientific efforts to find solutions for obesity, a disease highly associated with a number of serious health problems such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, atherosclerosis and certain kinds of cancer. The overall mortality directly and indirectly associated with obesity is rapidly increasing in Brazil and all around the world – so much so that, today, it is considered a global epidemic.

The OCRC staff is constantly in contact with the industry and other potential users of the knowledge and products obtained through our researches in order to speed up the transfer of knowledge to society..
