The Columbia University Diabetes Research Center provides research support for investigators pursuing research on diabetes and metabolic disorders. We provide a central support structure to foster collaboration among investigators working in the areas of:

  • Diabetes
  • Immunology
  • Transplantation
  • Obesity
  • Regenerative/cell-based therapies
  • Arteriosclerosis/lipid research
The Diabetes Research Center is committed to supporting all members through:

Research Cores


Animal Physiology & Phenotyping
Columbia Mouse Metabolic Function & Phenotyping Core Anthony W Ferrante Jr MD PhD
The Mouse Metabolic Phenotype and Function Core currently provides services that facilitate the efficient characterization of mouse models of diabetes and its complications.
Assay - Human & Laboratory Animal
Columbia Translational Biomarker Analytical Core Blandine Laferrère MD
The Translational Biomarker Analytical Core provides a variety of high quality radioimmunoassay and other analyses that are critical to basic, translational and clinical investigators studying diabetes mellitus, insulin resistance, insulin and C-peptide secretion, glucagon dynamics, energy homeostasis, and complications of diabetes.
Flow Cytometry
Columbia Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting Core Remi J Creusot PhD
The goal of the Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting Core facility is to support the need of DRC researchers in all aspects of analytic flow cytometry (cell surface markers, intracellular cytokines, transcription factors and phosphorylated signaling molecules), and with cell sorting services.
Histology, Morphology & Imaging
Columbia Advanced Tissue Pathology and Imaging Core Lori Zeltser PhD
The Advance Tissue Pathology and Imaging Core provides a spectrum of advanced cellular and tissue pathology and imaging services that meet the needs of diabetes researchers at Columbia University.
