  • core webinars
  • contact/request services

Translation research and data, especially in the areas of health services research, design, and evaluation can help close the gaps of identifying people at risk and with diabetes, and uptaking of prevention programs to reduce morbidity, especially among the vulnerable and minorities by tailoring diabetes prevention and control efforts to better suit target populations, and by generating policy- and practice-oriented data to inform investments in diabetes interventions.

The Core has three primary aims:

Offer accessible, cohesive, and multi-disciplinary methodological, analytical, and strategic expertise in diabetes translation research.

Help link research with opportunities for translation and implementation.

Stimulate high-quality diabetes translation research and uptake among a wide array of stakeholders including: academics, health care, non- and for-profit organizations, and local and federal government.
