Established in 2014, the Utah Diabetes and Metabolism Research Center (UDMRC) strives to unify clinicians, researchers, trainees, and educators to catalyze innovative research on diabetes and metabolic health throughout Utah and the Intermountain West.

The UDMRC brings together over 100 faculty spread across 24 departments and seven colleges. These investigators organize into two robust, multi-disciplinary Interest Groups: Metabolism Interest Group (MIG) and Health Behaviors Interest Group (HBIG).

UDMRC investigators span the translational research spectrum, and are poised to translate scientific discoveries into improved prevention strategies and treatments that ultimately improve metabolic health and quality of life.
