Thanks to the funding, senior researchers serve as mentors to junior researchers. The grant also provides funding to continue development and diabetes research.

The money is a renewal of a $12 million grant awarded to the center in 2006, resulting in about $23 million in total funding from the program. Five of the junior investigators who had projects funded by the 2006 grant were able to obtain independent grant funding for diabetes research at the center.

The money will aid researchers focused on diabetes-related cardiovascular disease, vascular damage, vision loss and tissue damage, among other things.
