Researchers at University of Utah Health have identified a specific class of bacteria from the gut that prevents mice from becoming obese, suggesting these same microbes may similarly control weight in people. ... Read MorePathology
The Utah Diabetes Research Center* (UDRC) aims to bring together clinicians, researchers, and educators to broadly support research relating to diabetes, metabolism, and overall metabolic health.
The UDRC 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.
