Diabetes Research

The goal of our research program is to investigate ways to prevent diabetes in at risk individuals, and to cure patients already diagnosed with the disease. The Diabetes Division has a rich and ongoing history of combining basic and clinical research efforts to create a multifaceted approach aimed at ridding the world of diabetes.

Our strategy is to maintain a dynamic and interactive research program that includes perspectives from both the laboratory bench top and the patient’s bedside. The University of Massachusetts Medical School has assembled a talented and dedicated group of basic and clinical researches to study diabetes and to advance our understanding of the biological mechanisms underlying the disease process.
