Center for American Indian and Alaska Native Diabetes Translational Research
University of Colorado
Director: Spero Manson, PhD
The mission for the Centers for American Indian and Alaska Native Health (CAIANH) is to promote the health and well-being of
American Indians and Alaska Natives, of all ages, by pursuing research, training, continuing education, technical assistance,
and information dissemination within a biopsychosocial framework that recognizes the unique cultural contexts of this special
Chicago Center for Diabetes Translation Research
University of Chicago
Director: Marshall Chin, MD, MPH
The Chicago Center for Diabetes Translation Research's mission is to improve the lives of people with diabetes and people at risk for diabetes through innovative, high-impact research.
It seeks to prevent diabetes, improve the quality and value of diabetes care, and empower patients and communities.
New York Regional Center for Diabetes Translation Research
Albert Einstein College of Medicine
Director: Elizabeth A Walker, PhD, RN Director: Judith Wylie-Rosett, EdD, RD
The Einstein New York Regional Center for Diabetes Translation Research has a strategic vision to leverage, energize and coordinate translational
diabetes-related research efforts in this region. Our unifying themes of health equity and a biopsychosocial approach are supported by three cores:
Translational Research Methodology, Life Course, and Population Health & Health Systems Core. In addition, we have a new national resource core,
the Latino Network for Diabetes Translation Research.
Georgia Center for Diabetes Translation Research
Director: KM Venkat Narayan, MD
The Georgia Center for Diabetes Translation Research (includes Emory University/Georgia Tech/Morehouse School of Medicine) focuses on using behavioral sciences,
technology, and intervention design to close the gap in diabetes prevention and care, especially across ethnicity, age, and comorbid groups in Georgia.
Health Delivery Systems Center for Diabetes Translational Research
Kaiser Foundation Research Institute
Director: Julie Schmittdiel, PhD
The Health Delivery Systems Center for Diabetes Translational Research (including Permanente/UCSF/HealthPartners/Harvard) aims to actively foster and support
translational research in diabetes within health care delivery systems affiliated with the Health Care Systems Research Network
University of California San Francisco
, and safety net hospitals nationally.
Michigan Center for Diabetes Translational Research
University of Michigan
Director: William Herman, MD, MPH
The Michigan Center for Diabetes Translational Research focuses on research expertise to better translate interventions that have clearly demonstrated efficacy
into real-world populations, health care settings, and communities.
Vanderbilt Center for Diabetes Translation Research
Director: Tom Elasy, MD, MPH
The Vanderbilt Center for Diabetes and Translational Research (CDTR) promotes innovative, translational diabetes research to develop prevention and treatment
strategies for diabetes and obesity. The Vanderbilt CDTR fosters a robust research enterprise of behavioral and translational diabetes and obesity researchers
at Vanderbilt University and neighboring Meharry Medical College. This CDTR builds upon this partnership’s ongoing success in diabetes translational research
and specifically provides diabetes-related translational research addressing the following areas: behavioral intervention technologies, innovations in care,
community engagement and community-based participatory research, health disparities in diabetes, culturally-sensitive/competent interventions, and clinical trials.
Washington University Center for Diabetes Translation Research
Director: Debra Haire-Joshu, PhD
The Washington University Center for Diabetes Translation Research supports rigorous translational research focused around two interacting scientific themes:
(1) the root causes of diabetes disparities, and (2) the prevention of obesity as a major contributing cause of Type 2 diabetes. The CDTR is a ‘network of networks’,
supporting investigators at Washington University, and those affiliated through a regional core with the University of Missouri at Columbia, and two health disparity
population cores with the National Congress of American Indians and the African American Collaborative Obesity Research Network. The CDTR houses unique translational
cores that assist investigators conducting transformative research addressing multiple dimensions of diabetes disparities in real world settings.
