Diabetes: from beta cells to bicycles


The BC Diabetes Research Network is a leader and partner in BC for discovery research and translation that will improve health outcomes for people living with and at risk for all types of diabetes.

The BC Diabetes Research Network (BCDRN) is a collaborative network of academic faculty and trainees engaged in diabetes research across the province of British Columbia, Canada. The BCDRN was established in 2018 with a Grant for Catalyzing Research Clusters (GCRC) from the University of British Columbia. We are grateful to the UBC Vice President Research & Innovation and the Provost & Vice-President Academic who have enabled the formation and growth of interdisciplinary clusters of research excellence. The purpose of the Grants for Catalyzing Research Clusters is to support a network of researchers spanning multiple disciplines, departments, institutions to work closely together to solve key challenges facing society.
