Center for Metabolic and Vascular Biology

The mission of the Center for Metabolic and Vascular Biology is to create, apply, and disseminate new knowledge of the mechanisms responsible for the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease.

In partnership with the Mayo Clinic, Scottsdale, the center brings together basic scientists with physician investigators to study inflammatory processes, insulin signaling, mitochondrial and vascular biology, gene expression regulation and adipocyte biology.

Through collaborative efforts, the center strives to discover the mechanisms involved in the development of diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and to extend that knowledge to the bedside and the community in order to improve the lives of countless people.
