Leading the Future of Endocrinology Research

UW endocrinology researchWith a history of cutting-edge NIH-funded research programs in diabetes research, obesity research, metabolic bone disease, and endocrine-related cancers, our faculty and researchers are devoted to both improving our understanding of endocrine diseases and improving the lives of patients.  

Collaboration is an integral part of our approach. Focusing on team science, our faculty collaborate with some of the world’s top scientists here at UW including experts in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine, genetics of type 2 diabetes, islet transplantation, cancer biology, nutrition, and public health. The outstanding research environment at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, which is home to some of the top basic science departments in the nation and a vibrant scientific community, is a unique asset of our program. In addition, our researchers have a close relationship with the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR), which provides support for all aspects of clinical/translational research including intramural funding opportunities.

The foundation we have established is a catalyst for growth to come. We are  currently undergoing a significant expansion in research related to diabetes and obesity, building on our legacy of interdisciplinary translational research in metabolism across campus.
