What We Do

What We Do

At the Emory Global Diabetes Research Center (EGDRC), we leverage our extensive global network to develop and advance the abilities of Emory, US, and non-US researchers to engage in world-class research in diabetes and other related non-communicable diseases such as stroke, hypertension, heart disease and co-morbid conditions such as tuberculosis, mental health, and HIV. Our research seeks to understand causes and consequences, investigate prevention methods, and inform policy by exploring risk factors such as socio-demographics, nutrition, obesity, physiology, and physical activity.
