Seed grants awarded to accelerate novel research in diabetes, obesity and metabolism


Driving Out Diabetes, a Larry H. Miller Family Wellness Initiative, and the Diabetes and Metabolism Research Center (DMRC) has awarded grants to six projects designed to activate novel research projects in the areas of diabetes, obesity and metabolism. This year’s six recipients represent various colleges and departments across University of Utah Health, from cardiology and psychology, to nursing.

“The work being supported through these seed grants pushes the frontiers of innovative research. Though all of these projects are at very early stages, they could one day lead to new clinical approaches that may greatly reduce the burden of diabetes in our states,” says Scott Summers, PhD, department chair of Nutrition and Integrative Physiology.
