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.
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
