Clinical Studies

An important facet of the Metabolism, Endocrinology & Diabetes (MEND) Division is its ground-breaking clinical research. Through clinical studies, our doctors and research staff learn more about endocrinological, metabolic, and diabetic illnesses and their complications, while investigating new methodologies and treatments. We are proud to be on the front line of this research with funding from the top agencies, such as the American Diabetes Association, the National Institutes of Health, and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Many of the MEND Division's innovative studies are making an impact today and have transformed the field of endocrinology, metabolism, and diabetes knowledge and treatment. This would not be possible without study participants, who are our partners in the vital research that we perform.

If you, or someone you know, would be interested in helping contribute to medical advances in these areas, please read about our current clinical trials above. Often, both healthy volunteers are needed for studies as well as patients who have the disease.

You can find out more details about each study in the list above by clicking on its number, which will take you to the sign-up page for that study in the University of Michigan's Clinical Studies Database.
