Diabetes Research Centers

Seung K. Kim is Professor in the Department of Developmental Biology and, by courtesy, in the Department of Medicine (Oncology Division) at Stanford University School of Medicine, where he has been a faculty member since 1998.
The mission of the Stanford Diabetes Research Center is to support basic and clinical research to discover, apply and translate science about diabetes and it complications, to improve health and wellness.
My laboratory studies the mechanism by which hyperglycemia and insulin resistance are causing diabetic retinopathy, nephropathy and cardiovascular diseases.
Since its inception in 1898, the primary mission of the Joslin Diabetes Center has been to care for people with diabetes, and conduct research to provide new knowledge about diabetes and its complications that will lead to new treatments, prevention and/or cure of these disorders.
Clay F. Semenkovich, M.D., is Chief of the Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Lipid Research and Professor of Medicine and of Cell Biology and Physiology.
TThe mission of the Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM) Diabetes Research Center (DRC) is to support and enhance research in diabetes and related metabolic diseases.
Dr. Myers’ research focuses on the processes that enable the body to respond normally to insulin, and how problems in these pathways contribute to the development of insulin resistance and diabetes.
The goal of the Michigan Diabetes Research Center (MDRC) is to establish, promote, and enhance multidisciplinary and collaborative basic biomedical and clinical research among member investigators studying diabetes, its complications, and related endocrine and metabolic disorders.
Dr. Shulman is the George R. Cowgill Professor of Medicine, Cellular & Molecular Physiology and Physiological Chemistry at Yale University, where he serves as Co-Director of the Yale Diabetes Research Center and Director of the Yale Mouse Metabolic Phenotyping Center.
The Yale Diabetes Research Center (DRC) was established in the spring of 1993 with the goal of promoting research in diabetes and related metabolic and endocrine disorders at the university.
My research concerns the molecular mechanisms of type 2 diabetes and the effects of iron on metabolism and risk for chronic diseases. These studies encompass basic mechanistic approaches using animal and cell culture models, as well as multicenter human clinical trials.

The mission of the North Carolina Diabetes Research Center (NCDRC) is to create and support an interactive regional diabetes research community (184 members) across four premiere research institutions in North Carolina, who currently garner over $70 million annually for support of their diabetes

The Garvey laboratory is interested in the molecular, metabolic, and genetic basis of type 2 diabetes mellitus, insulin resistance, and obesity.
The Diabetes Research and Training Center (DRC) focuses on developing new methods to treat, prevent, and ultimately cure diabetes and its complications.
The main focus of the Sussel lab is to understand the complex transcriptional networks that regulate development, differentiation and function of the pancreas. We have identified several novel regulatory pathways that are essential for islet lineage specification, normal pancreas development and the maintenance of beta cell maturation.
The University of Colorado Denver is world renowned for basic, translational, and clinical diabetes research and treatment of both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes (T1D and T2D), and their related complications. The University of Colorado Diabetes Research Center will provide improved infrastructure and access to specialized reagents and resources, and an environment that promotes scientific interactions, research discoveries, and progress towards diabetes treatment and cures.
The goals of Dr. Evans-Molina’s research program are (1) to define the molecular and inflammatory etiologies of b cell dysfunction in Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and (2) to identify novel stem cell based strategies to improve b cell survival in diabetes.
The Center for Diabetes and Metabolic Diseases (CDMD) at IU School of Medicine is a world-renowned center focused on centralizing and fostering research along five fundamental themes to strengthen the diabetes research base throughout Indiana.
The Pessin laboratory is analyzing insulin signaling at the molecular level, the regulation of glucose uptake and metabolism at the cellular, molecular level and the integrative systems of metabolism in normal and pathophysiologic states in genetic rodent models.
The Einstein-Mount Sinai Diabetes Research Center (ES-DRC) comprises a vibrant, extensive, diverse, well-funded and highly productive program that provides the foundation for high-quality and cutting-edge research in diabetes and related studies in obesity, metabolism and endocrinology.

NIDDK Diabetes Centers

NIDDK’s Diabetes Centers program supports extramural research institutions that have established an existing base of high-quality, diabetes-related research. Diabetes Research Centers are part of an integrated program of diabetes and related endocrinology and metabolism research.  Diabetes Research Centers (DRCs) promote new discoveries and enhance scientific progress through the support of cutting-edge basic and clinical research related to the etiology and complications of diabetes, with the goal of rapidly translating research findings into novel strategies for the prevention, treatment and cure of diabetes and related conditions. Centers for Diabetes Translation Research (CDTR) support and enhance type II translation research (e.g., moving from efficacy to testing effectiveness in real world practice and communities and dissemination and implementation science) related to diabetes prevention and treatment.  The CDTRs are intended to enhance the efficiency, productivity, and multidisciplinary nature of diabetes translation research through shared access to specialized technical expertise and resources.
