Research to Prevent and Cure Diabetes at UMass Chan Medical School

Diabetes Research at UMass Medical School

Under the co-direction of Dale L. Greiner, PhD, and David M. Harlan, MD, the goal of the UMass Diabetes Center of Excellence (DCOE) at UMass Chan Medical School is to prevent and cure diabetes. Our DCOE research faculty is gaining new knowledge of the disease by studying human tissues and human cells inside of our unique biological models, which mimic the human immune system. Understanding what causes diabetes will allow us to develop effective therapies, and ultimately find the cure.
