Digestive Diseases Research Core Centers

The Digestive Diseases Research Core Centers program provides a mechanism for funding shared resources (i.e., core facilities).  Through these Centers, the NIDDK aims to integrate, coordinate, and foster interdisciplinary cooperation between groups of established investigators that conduct high-quality research on digestive diseases.  An existing base of outstanding digestive disease-related research is a prerequisite for the establishment of a Center.  Research in these Centers focuses on:  liver diseases; gastrointestinal motility, absorption and secretion processes; inflammatory bowel disease; structure/function relationships in the gastrointestinal tract; neuropeptides and gut hormones; and gastrointestinal membrane receptors.
