2016 a year of milestones, accomplishments for VUMC

Slowing the burden of diabetes

Researchers at VUMC received more than $11 million in new grant support aimed at slowing the growing burden of diabetes.

One new grant from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) of the NIH (grant number DK106755) will provide $6.2 million over five years to discover “pancreatic islet signatures” in type 2 diabetes. A second NIDDK grant (DK108120) will provide $4.4 million over five years to study the maturation of the human pancreas during the first five years of life.

NIH Grant Bolsters Mass Spectrometry Research Initiatives

The five-year, $10.5-million grant will support groundbreaking projects aimed at visualizing, at the molecular level, retinal disease, ovarian cancer, the impact of diabetes on the kidney and brain, and host-pathogen interactions in infectious diseases, said the grant’s principal investigator, Richard Caprioli, Ph.D.

Diabetes Drugs May Ease Addiction
Drugs that mimic the action of glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1), and which are being used clinically to treat obesity and Type 2 diabetes, also may have a role in treating drug abuse.

That’s the implication of a study in mice by Aurelio Galli, Ph.D., and colleagues published recently in the journal Translational Psychiatry.

Major grants bolster VUMC diabetes research
“We hope these grants will provide new insight into what causes the insulin deficiency
in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes and help us understand how to prevent or better treat diabetes.”
