The National Institutes of Health announced a new strategic plan to guide diabetes research over the next decade.
NIH unveils strategy for diabetes research
The plan, Advances and Emerging Opportunities in Diabetes Research: A Strategic Planning Report of the Diabetes Mellitus Interagency Coordinating Committee, targets 10 areas of diabetes research, looking at areas such as the relationship between obesity and type 2 diabetes; the autoimmune mechanisms at work in type 1 diabetes; and reducing the impact of diabetes on groups disproportionately affected by the disease. The Diabetes Mellitus Interagency Coordinating Committee is a congressionally authorized workgroup chaired by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.
“By setting priorities and identifying the most compelling research opportunities, the strategic plan will guide NIH, other federal agencies and the investigative community in efforts to improve diabetes treatments and identify ways to keep more people healthy,” Dr. Griffin Rodgers, director of the diabetes institute, said in a news release.
