SPOTLIGHT

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) is pursuing biomedical research on many of the common, costly and chronic diseases such as diabetes, endocrine and metabolic disorders including liver disease and obesity; kidney, urologic and hematologic diseases. In 2003, NIDDK has developed a central repository to make clinical data, bio-specimens with a linked database and genetic material stocks associated with NIDDK-funded on-going and completed studies, easily accessible among scientists to accelerate work progress and lower the cost of new discoveries. Scientists can use high-throughput genotyping and sequencing data resource of the repository to elucidate altered gene function in many diseases associated with hereditary disorder or environmental effects.

It is a great platform for NIDDK scientists and world-wide partners to share their findings to the broader scientific community to achieve the ultimate goal of improving public...
