Project Details

Description

CENTER OVERVIEW The New York Regional Center for Diabetes Translation Research (NY-CDTR) is seeking is first competitive renewal in order to continue to maximize the assets devoted to diabetes translation research in the high-need, culturally diverse New York area. With this application, we expand our services and enhance our focus on health equity and social determinants of health. The NY-CDTR greatly expands the resources to support type 2 translational research on diabetes and obesity and foster further collaborative efforts to drive cutting-edge translational research throughout the New York region, with the Albert Einstein College of Medicine serving as a central collaborating hub for these efforts. Our National Resource Core enhances our impact on the national level with a focus on diabetes prevention and control in the US Latino population. The intrinsic strength of our multidisciplinary research base and diversity of patient- and community-centered activities provide an integrated platform upon which the NY-CDTR has developed and will continue to expand strong linkages, leveraging our several NIH-funded Centers and institutional resources. The goals of the NY- CDTR are to continue to improve and expand delivery of existing services, develop innovative new services and increase the breadth of our translational research base to focus on health equity and T3-T4 translational research projects targeting diabetes health equity in vulnerable populations in collaboration with multi-sector and multi-stakeholder partners. Our growth in membership, productivity in outcomes, and our research base over our first funding period positioned us extremely well for continued national impact. Guided by our Center themes that focus on health equity and a biopsychosocial approach, we focus on these Specific Aims: 1) To foster the growth and development of an existing outstanding scientific base devoted to type 2 translational research related to the prevention and control of diabetes and its complications by supporting and administering four translational research cores, including a National Resource Core: a) Behavioral Science and Technology Core, b) Life Course Methodology Core, c) Population Health and Health Systems Core, d) Latino Network for Diabetes Translation Research: A National Resource Core. 2) To promote a Pilot & Feasibility Study Program that supports initiation of diabetes translation research programs and enhances the careers of new investigators. 3) To support and organize an Enrichment Program by making accessible outstanding, live and virtual, interactive, external and internal seminars, podcasts, faculty/trainee conferences. 4) To provide an Administrative Core as the principal means of planning, implementing and evaluating the programs in research, training, resources and enrichment activities. 5) To expand and integrate the scientific efforts of the NY-CDTR with our innovative Latino Network for Diabetes Translation Research national resource core that engages investigators leading the NIH-funded Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos and others funded for Latino diabetes translation research.
