DRC at Joslin Diabetes Center

DRC Cores

The primary aim of the Joslin Diabetes and Endocrinology Research Center (DRC) is to provide a stable framework on which to conduct multi-disciplinary studies and to encourage the scientific development of young investigators.

The DRC consists of three clusters of activity which support 10 separate cores, a Computer Resource, and an Enrichment Program.

The Core laboratories are the major components of the Joslin DRC and represent the most visible and important aspect of the DRC. They are used by every investigator at Joslin and are an integral part of Joslin research.
