Within days of announcing IU School of Medicine as one of the study sites, more than 3,000 Hoosiers created volunteer profiles through All IN for Health, a program of the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI).
Scientists have found that insulin has met an evolutionary cul-de-sac, limiting its ability to adapt to obesity and thereby rendering most people vulnerable to Type 2 diabetes. A recent study from scientists at Indiana University School of Medicine, the University of Michigan and Case Western Reserve University has determined that the sequence of insulin has become entrenched at the edge of impaired production, an intrinsic vulnerability unmasked by rare mutations in the insulin gene causing diabetes in childhood
Indiana University School of Medicine is partnering with the Northwest Indiana GME Consortium to launch a new psychiatry residency program at its regional campus in northwest Indiana aimed at treating an underserved population in that part of the state.
