Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism Research
Fellows are required to be involved in research. Robust facilities for research are available at the THE CENTER FOR CLINICAL AND TRANSLATIONAL SCIENCES (http://ccts.uth.tmc.edu/) A clinical research center is available on site. Opportunities exist in basic science investigation, clinical research, and epidemiology. The Center for Clinical Research and Evidence Based Medicine provides a clinical research curriculum (http://ped1.med.uth.tmc.edu/centers/CR-EBM/) which is funded by the NIH and administered jointly by The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. The program is designed to promote clinical research expertise among clinical research investigators at the fellow and junior faculty level. Additional courses are available at the UT School of Public Health. Areas of research include thyroid cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, insulin resistance and ovarian hyperandrogenism, and abnormalities of fat metabolism. The Center for Metabolic and Degenerative Diseases focuses on noninsulin-dependent diabetes, the most common form of the disease affecting our population today. By investigating the genes responsible for risk factors such as obesity, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, we may provide physicians with the new tools to help diagnose and treat diabetes long before debilitating complications can arise, or even before the disease itself can strike.
