National Resource Core

Center for Diabetes Translational Research

The CAIANDTR houses a National Resource Core, the purpose of which is to assemble, focus, mobilize, provide, monitor, and evaluate resources necessary to stimulate, carry out, and translate the outcomes of diabetes prevention and management research. Given the magnitude of the diabetes epidemic that afflicts AI/AN communities, we believe it is imperative to bring as many investigators and communities together as possible. The National Resource Core will be the catalyst for much wider dissemination and implementation of diabetes prevention and management approaches than could be envisioned otherwise. In addition, our experience repeatedly underscores the fact that the knowledge acquired in working with AI/ANs and concomitant lessons learned have value—theoretically as well as programmatically—for a far larger audience than for Native people alone.

The CAIANDTR National Resource Core will provide access to the materials developed in the context of the Engagement, Technology, Implementation, Dissemination, & Diffusion (IDD) and Sustainability Cores as well as targeted consultation nationally to those involved in diabetes translational research, especially among American Indians and Alaska Natives.
