Cover of Advances & Emerging Opportunities in Diabetes Research: A Strategic Planning Report of the DMICC

The promise of prevention, treatment, and cure for diabetes can only be realized through the vigorous support of scientific research. This research must be conducted through a multi-pronged effort that addresses the complex challenges posed by diabetes, from dysfunctions in the most fundamental molecular and cellular processes, to the need for new approaches to translate scientific findings into improved health for patients. The purpose of this research plan, “Advances and Emerging Opportunities in Diabetes Research: A Strategic Planning Report of the Diabetes Mellitus Interagency Coordinating Committee (DMICC),” is to serve as a scientific guidepost, identifying compelling opportunities for research on diabetes and its complications over the next decade.
