Elizabeth Cox awarded funding to build pipeline to personalize diabetes prevention & treatment

Elizabeth CoxDr. Elizabeth Cox and collaborators have been awarded UW2020 funding to build a translational research pipeline to personalize diabetes prevention and treatment. The project will establish a data registry and biobank of individuals with diabetes, called the Diabetes Research Accelerator for Wisconsin (DRAW), as a step towards delivering personalized diabetes care and facilitating interdisciplinary translational diabetes research at UW-Madison.

Over 70% of patients with diabetes do not have adequate blood sugar control, which can significantly diminish the quality and length of life. By building the DRAW resource for scientists at UW-Madison, the investigators aim to improve the health for the over 29 million people in the United States with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes by enhancing the ability of providers to personalize diabetes care.
