Welcome to the University of Washington Diabetes Research Center

The Diabetes Research Center (DRC) at the University of Washington is one of 18 Diabetes Research Centers sponsored by the National Institutes of Health to promote basic, translational, and clinical research on diabetes and related metabolic disorders.

  • Since our Center’s founding over 30 years ago, our service has always focused on one priority: facilitating and enhancing diabetes research to find a cure to diabetes.
  • The Diabetes Research Center serves as resource for diabetes investigators at the University of Washington and affiliated institutions.
  • We continue to encourage, foster, and support all stages of diabetes-related translational research and studies.
  • The ultimate goals of diabetes research are to elucidate the etiology and pathogenesis of the disease processes causing diabetes and the end-organ complications of this disease. Learn more about the DRC.

Two Large NIH Studies Currently Open for Enrollment in Seattle



 

The Restoring Insulin Secretion Study

The goal of the Restoring Insulin Secretion (RISE) Study is to find new approaches to prevent or treat types 2 diabetes. We're looking for adults who were recently diagnosed with diabetes or who are at risk for diabetes.

The Glycemia Reduction Approaches in Diabetes:
A Comparative Effectiveness Study (GRADE) is a long-term study of different treatments for type 2 diabetes.

GRADE will determine which combination of two medications is best for glycemic control, has the fewest side effects, and is the most beneficial for overall health.
