Research at the UF Health Diabetes Institute unites a network of clinical care providers, researchers, and lab technicians from around the University of Florida.

Since its inception, nearly 3000 patients have participated in one or more of the UF Health Diabetes Institute’s clinical trials or studies.

The Institute draws upon the wide range of expertise from over 100 investigators with interests in diabetes, obesity, inflammation, lipid metabolism, genetics, population health, and disease pathogenesis. Core members of the Institute’s faculty conduct both basic research to clarify the mechanisms causing diabetes and their consequences, and translational research to transform their research findings into clinical solutions.

The shared technologies available through primary services provided by the University of Florida and private philanthropy– allow our investigators to conduct state-of-the-art basic and clinical diabetes research, moving us closer to a cure.
