Information on clinical trials conducted by Diabetes Center at UCSF researchers is now available online through the Diabetes Center website. Users can access an up-to-date list of UCSF clinical trials in type 1 and type 2 diabetes that are seeking to enroll patients, with information on each trial as well as study contacts to find out more about eligibility and enrollment. Note that additional trials will be added in the coming weeks, so check back often if you are interested in participating in a clinical research study.
The Diabetes Center at UCSF is a comprehensive diabetes clinical and research facility comprised of three cooperating arms: the Clinical Center, the Diabetes Teaching Center, and the Research Center. It is one of only a few diabetes programs in the country that combines superb patient care and education with aggressive basic research into the causes and potential cures for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
The three arms of the Diabetes Center are comprised of numerous faculty, post-graduate, graduate students, and staff. One of the traditional strengths of the Diabetes Center has been the number of collaborations that take place between different scientific and medical disciplines related to diabetes. The Diabetes Center continues to recruit promising young faculty, graduate, and post-graduate students to strengthen its team of innovative investigators.
A key feature of the Diabetes Clinical Center is its close collaboration with UCSF diabetes researchers. With few distinct boundaries between clinical researchers and laboratory scientists, UCSF patients have access to late-breaking discoveries and new strategies for diagnosing and managing type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
Clinical research is also a priority among Diabetes Center faculty, with a number of clinical trials ongoing at any given time, spanning the gambit of diabetes research topics.
