About the Institute
Although the Cincinnati Diabetes and and Obesity Center has "center" in its name, it is one of four major institutes at the College of Medicine. Diabetes and obesity continue to be major health problems for children and adults. UC scientists and clinicians have developed research and treatment programs for types 1 and 2 diabetes, as well as complications of diabetes and obesity.
Basic scientists at UC study peripheral hormones and how they act in the central nervous system to regulate food intake and body weight. Additional attention is given to genetic and environmental risk factors, bariatric surgery and nutrition and gestational diabetes.
