The Diabetes Translational Research Center (DTRC) was organized with support from the NIDDK Prevention and Control Division of the former Diabetes Research and Training Center, with assistance from the Indiana University School of Medicine and INGEN funding. The mission of the Center is to organize research that improves both the prevention of diabetes and the delivery of diabetes care, and that addresses the gap between developmental and clinical trial research and "real-world" implementation of interventions relevant to diabetes. Given the alarming increase in the rate of diabetes both nationally and internationally, this is a timely and important mission.
Dr. David G. Marrero serves as the Director of the DTRC. Dr. Mary de Groot serves as the Associate Director. Located on the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis campus at the Health Information and Translational Sciences building in the School of Medicine, the DTRC sponsors and supports three programs: the Health Services Program, the Community Research Program, and the Health Policy Program. These programs and all center investigators are supported by three cores; the Behavioral Core, the Biostatistics Core, and the Health Economics Core.
