The Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes (BDC) specializes in type 1 diabetes research and care for children and adults. It is one of the largest diabetes institutes in the world. The Center is part of the University of Colorado School of Medicine and has its dedicated building on the Anschutz Medical Campus (map) in Aurora, Colorado. The Center was funded by Marvin Davis, in 1978, and is generously supported by the Children’s Diabetes Foundation (CDF).
clinical researchers, and basic biomedical scientists work at the BDC to
find the most effective treatment, prevention, and cure for type 1
diabetes. The Center provides state-of-the-art diabetes care to 3600
children and 2400 adults with diabetes from the Rocky Mountain Region as
well as receiving national and international referrals. We also provide
inpatient care to patients who are seen at the Children’s Hospital
Colorado with any type of diabetes.
The Center’s faculty teach the medical,
physician assistant, nursing, and dental students on campus. Residents
and endocrinology fellows train at the Center on elective rotations.
Basic science faculty members provide mentorship to pre-doctoral
students and post-doctoral fellows from around the world.
