Research

At Kovler, research teams make discoveries leading to novel treatments, prevention and even potential cures for types 1 and 2 diabetes, obesity, and diabetic complications.

Current research underway at the Kovler Diabetes Center covers most aspects of pediatric and adult diabetes and obesity at both the clinical and basic laboratory levels.

This work is conducted in a cross-disciplinary environment, where interaction among investigators in multiple areas spawns comprehensive translational research.

Working interactively with the Diabetes Research Training Center (DRTC) and the Committee on Molecular Metabolism & Nutrition (CMMN), a specialized graduate program, Kovler gains additional research resources while helping train the next generation of diabetes and obesity researchers.

As part of these partnerships, Kovler helps support a seminar series for visiting scientists and professors specializing in diabetes-related areas. For more information see Research Events.
