Director's Note

No man is an island. Many hands make light work. The sum is greater than its parts. We find the truths of these sayings throughout our work, where forging collaborations can result in new hypotheses and efficiencies as we build toward the greater goal: discoveries that improve health.

As part of the Centers program, we fund cores that provide highly specialized skills or services in NIDDK areas. We encourage Centers to offer core resources widely, building an efficient, cost-effective and scientifically rigorous network of sharable facilities. I encourage you to learn more about our Centers programs in this issue. Read more
