Project Details

Description

The Iowa Diabetes-Endocrinology Research CEnter (DERC) is
designed to foster a multidisciplinary approach to the study of
hormone action at the cellular and molecular level.
Investigations primarily relate to the effects of insulin and
insulin-like growth factors, gene regulation, and steroid hormone
action, however, also included are studies of the action of
catecholamines, prolactin and gonadotrophin releasing hormone.

The center has 5 major goals: (1) to promote multidisciplinary
approaches to the study of mechanisms of hormone action
through collaborative studies; (2) to develop molecular biology
approaches to hormone action; (3) to test new hypotheses related
to mechanisms of hormone action through the Pilot and
Feasibility Programs; (4) to centralize facilities that were being
duplicated in several different laboratories; (5) to provide, as
core resources, facilities and expertise that are not available at
the University but would be advantageous to multiple DERC
investigators.

To achieve these goals, the Center has developed several
resource cores: An Administration Core; Computer Core; Cell
Biology Core (Media Production and Monoclonal Antibody
Production); Membrane Biology Core (Central Facility for
Peptide Iodination, Membrane Preparation and Analysis, and
Receptor Localization); Molecular Biology Core (Recombinant
DNA and DNA Synthesis); an Enrichment Program of seminar
speakers and workshops and a Pilot and Feasibility Study
Program to support pilot studies related to the center theme.
