The genetics of Type 2 Diabetes Program seeks to identify genes that contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Specific areas of support include:
- Studies using animal models to identify diabetes genes:
- Studies using quantitative statistical methods to identify diabetes genes in human populations.
- Development of genetic resources, patient samples and methods for studying genetic linkage for diabetes.
