Core Facilities

The JDRF Center for the Study of Complications in Diabetes is a multidisciplinary consortium of research scientists, clinicians, health professionals, and technicians dedicated to the elucidation of disease mechanisms as they relate to the complications of diabetes. The Center's goal is to translate the understanding of disease mechanisms (i.e., neuropathy, retinopathy and nephropathy) into novel preventative and curative treatments for diabetic complications.

The Center currently includes seven projects conducted by six principal investigators. Each project is focused on a different aspect of diabetic complications. To aid these investigations, there are three Research Cores: Morphology, Molecular Biochemistry and Oxidative Stress, that provide services to the investigators in order to extend their research efforts. These services include planning, executing, and collecting data for animal experiments, providing cell culture services; and performing oxidative stress measurements in tissues and cells. Supportive core and administrative facilities, provides a coherent research environment dedicated to the elucidation, prevention and cure of complications in diabetes.
