Executive Summary

The Diabetes Centers Resource and Coordinating Center (DCRCC) will serve the needs of the three DEM Diabetes Centers (P30s) by providing a hub for the Diabetes Centers program to address timely opportunities and challenges including urgent needs and areas of emphasis, and to support the evolving roles of the Diabetes Centers programs. The role of the DCRCC will be to 1) encourage and administratively support cross Diabetes Centers programs and 2) provide administrative support for new programs involving outreach to diabetes researchers across the nation that are not supported by a funded Diabetes Center. The DCRCC will provide the resources to build the infrastructure for and establishment of specific collaborative activities across the diabetes community that could include, but are not limited to, meetings and conferences, pilot studies, access to emerging technologies, visiting scholar programs, and other collaborative efforts. The DCRCC is intended to leverage the substantial investments by NIDDK in the Diabetes Centers programs by fostering and sustaining the development of novel interdisciplinary efforts in diabetes and endocrinology from pre-clinical to clinical, translation to dissemination, as well as promoting health equity and enhancing diversity in the research workforce.
