About the CDTR
The Vanderbilt Center for Diabetes Translation Research (CDTR) is a collaborative effort between The Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Meharry Medical College. The cores provide services to investigators with externally funded, diabetes-related translational research addressing the following areas: innovations in care, community engagement, culturally-sensitive/competent interventions, clinical trials, quality improvement, quality assurance, health services research, environmental studies, & community-based participatory research.
The establishment of the center is in response to a competitive funding opportunity through the National Institute of Health (NIH) & the National Institute of Diabetes & Digestive & Kidney Diseases (NIDDK).
