The UNC Diabetes Research and Clinical Trials program is committed to research with the goal of developing new methods to treat, prevent and ultimately cure diabetes mellitus and its complications.

Our research involves both clinical and basic science investigation. We are  focused on mechanisms of insulin resistance, new modalities for treatment of  diabetes, factors that are responsible for improving bone mineral density, the  role of hormones in reproductive disorders in women, molecular mechanisms of  obesity and the role of hormones in the development of atherosclerosis.

Our teaching responsibilities include students in the Graduate School and the  School of Medicine as well as providing continuing education for physicians  throughout the state of North Carolina.
