Fellowship Research

Guo with Student

Research is a key component of the fellowship program. The Diabetes Fellows are expected to initiate an original research project related to the basic or clinical science of diabetes care management, and up to one day a week is dedicated to said research. Innovative and ground-breaking research projects are ongoing in numerous areas related to diabetes at the college and throughout other areas of the university.
