The NIDDK-supported Centers for Diabetes Translation Research (CDTR) are part of an integrated program whose cores support and enhance diabetes type II translation research (e.g. bedside to practice and the community, dissemination and implementation science).NIDDK’s Diabetes Centers program supports extramural research institutions that have established an existing base of high-quality, diabetes-related research.

The purpose of the CDTRs is to enhance the efficiency, productivity, effectiveness and multidisciplinary nature of diabetes translation research. Centers are intended to improve the quality and multidisciplinary nature of research of diabetes translational research through shared access to specialized technical expertise. The Centers objectives are to bring together investigators from relevant disciplines in a manner that will enhance and extend the effectiveness of their research.
