NIH Bestows DERC Distinction for Diabetes Center

Once again, the National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive & Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) has designated the UCSF Diabetes Center as a Diabetes Endocrinology Research Center (DERC), one of only 10 programs nationally to hold this prestigious rank.

The DERC designation recognizes the high quality of the UCSF diabetes research program. It is a multidisciplinary award that brings together researchers and clinicians involved in endocrinology, metabolism, nutrition, human genetics, immunology, and molecular and cell biology.

Congratulations to Michael German, MD and Fred Schaufele, PhD for their efforts in securing this important research program for the Diabetes Center.
