Welcome to the UCSD-UCLA Diabetes Research Center.
For the past 17 years, the UCSD-UCLA DRC has linked together the diabetes and metabolism research activities of two major universities within the UC system and three outstanding Institutes in Southern California.
This effort has fostered new collaborations and interactions between outstanding scientists within and across these institutions.
The DRC will continue to advance scientific and intellectual interactions by organizing and facilitating meetings and lectures, mentor young scientists through support of our Pilot Grants and
Enrichment Programs, accelerate diabetes research by providing state-of-the-art services through five cutting-edge cores, and accelerate translational research activity and collaborations through interactions with the Clinical and Translational Science Award programs at each institution.
