- Patient Care
The UCSF Diabetes Center, which marked its 10-year anniversary in 2010, unites clinical care, basic science and clinical research, and education aspects of diabetes into a comprehensive program to improve the quality of life of those living with diabetes.
UCSF has a long history at the forefront of diabetes research, and today basic and clinical research teams are continuing to lead the charge in the fight to advance scientific understanding, treatment options and ultimately, a cure for the disease.
UCSF’s dedication to treating people with diabetes and to finding a cure is manifest in many of its educational programs. And the UCSF commitment to translational medicine is helping to draw graduate students who want to see a connection between their work in the laboratory and potential treatments to benefit patients.
