The Enrichment Program at the Center for Diabetes and Metabolic Diseases seeks to create a rich dynamic environment for learning and regular interaction between investigators at all levels. The program is the focal point for the dissemination and exchange of knowledge within and between IU School of Medicine and its affiliated institutions by sponsoring a seminar series and an annual symposium that brings together top local and national investigators in a collaborative and interactive forum.
These activities benefit not only investigators, but also students and postdoctoral fellows who are supported by five T32 awards from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). These institutional training programs focus on basic diabetes research, biomedical engineering research in diabetes, nutrition research, basic and clinical research in endocrine diseases and complications research.
Investigators and students have the opportunity to learn from internationally recognized researchers through the Enrichment Program Seminar Series. The CME-certified series includes lectures, research reports and literature reviews.
Since 2014, the annual symposium has aimed to expand and integrate research on diabetes, obesity and metabolic diseases in Indiana and beyond. The event introduces attendees to novel ideas, discoveries and trends related to diabetes, metabolism, obesity and more. This year’s event occurred on Friday, July 26, 2019.
