About Us

The Diabetes Research Center was first established at BCM in January 2008. The overall goal of the DRC is to support and facilitate innovative research towards the elucidation of the pathogenesis of diabetesmellitus and the pathphysiologic basis of diabetic complications, development of new treatments and the implementation of translational research in diverse diabetes populations. The DRC seeks to achieve these long-range goals and objectives via the following objectives:

  • To create and sustain an exceptional environment that supports innovative, multidisciplinary and collaborative research in diabetes and related areas of endocrinology and metabolism.
  • To foster diabetes research among new investigators and entice established investigators in other areas to participate in diabetes research through an innovative and effective Pilot and Feasibility Program.
  • To support and facilitate innovative research towards the elucidation of the pathogenesis of diabetes mellitus and the pathphysiologic basis of diabetic complications, development of new treatments and the implementation of translational research in diverse diabetes populations.

  • To provide and coordinate diabetes research education and training opportunities to students, physicians, scientists and established investigators in diabetes; and to disseminate basic diabetes knowledge and new findings generated by DRC investigators. See enrichment opportunities.
