Director's Note

At NIDDK, we strive to help researchers grow at all stages of their careers. NIDDK’s labs have a long-held tradition of offering a supportive research environment to trainees from the local community and around the world—a culture of mentorship typified by our Phoenix Epidemiology and Clinical Research Branch, as you’ll read about later in this issue.
