Congratulations to Debra Haire-Joshu and colleagues who were recently awarded one of seven new CDTRs.
Washington University in St. Louis has received a five-year, $3 million grant to establish a new center to develop better ways to prevent and treat type 2 diabetes in high-risk patients, including American Indians and Alaska Natives.
The center’s funding comes from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Washington University was one of seven institutions awarded funding to establish this type of diabetes research center.
“The Center for Diabetes Translation Research is a unique opportunity to make sure cutting-edge science has an impact on real-world settings,” says Debra Haire-Joshu, PhD, professor of public health at the Brown School and the School of Medicine and director of the new center. “This grant will enable us to support research that addresses the root causes of diabetes and disparities.”
