Diabetes & Metabolism Research Center
The Diabetes and Metabolism Research Center (DMRC) at University of Utah Health aims to bring together clinicians, researchers, and educators to broadly support research relating to diabetes, metabolism, and overall metabolic health.
The DMRC research scope spans the continuum from basic research studies using model systems to clinical trials. Studies on diabetes include investigations on the pathophysiology of diabetes, control of diabetes complications, and diabetes management strategies.
Research on metabolism ranges from basic investigations on mitochondrial biology and metabolic control to metabolic contributions to heart disease and cancer.
Our goal is to create a platform for innovative basic, translational, clinical, and population health research that will yield new prevention methods and treatments that ultimately improve metabolic health and quality of life.
