At Kovler, more than 150 scientists work toward novel treatments, prevention and even potential cures for type 1 and 2 diabetes, obesity, and diabetic complications.
Researchers at Kovler translate scientific discoveries into pediatric and adult diabetes clinical care.
With 25 principal investigators affiliated with Kovler, and an NIH-funded Diabetes Research and Training Center (DRTC) in house, advances in basic and clinical medicine proliferate in a progressive, multidisciplinary environment.
In addition to the DRTC, Kovler is tied to the Committee on Molecular Metabolism & Nutrition (CMMN), a specialized graduate education program focusing on how metabolism relates to human disease. Together with the DRTC and CMMN, Kovler is training the next generation of diabetes and obesity researchers.
