Center for Research in Reproduction and Contraception (CRRC)

The Center for Research in Reproduction and Contraception is dedicated to basic and clinical research focused primarily on the male reproductive system. Under the auspices of the center, investigators are working to understand the biology of this complex system and to apply their findings to problems of infertility and contraceptive development. Their research ranges from the biophysics of cell signaling to clinical trials of hormonal contraceptives. 

Diabetes Institute (DI)

The Diabetes Institute brings together a large number of investigators, most of whom are members of the division, studying various aspects of the basic science of diabetes and obesity.  It is housed in laboratories at the South Lake Union campus, and also provides shared equipment and core services that facilitates the research of these investigators.

Northwest Lipid Metabolism and Diabetes Research Laboratories (NWRL)

The Northwest Lipid Metabolism and Diabetes Research Laboratories (NWRL) is a highly specialized research and laboratory facility, which is under the direction of Santica M. Marcovina, PhD, ScD, Research Professor of Medicine. The three major components of NWRL are:

  1. Research
  2. Method Development and Standardization
  3. Central Laboratory for Clinical Trials

The research activity is mainly focused on the structure and metabolism of Lipoprotein(a). The laboratory plays a major role nationally and internationally as the Lipid Reference Method Laboratory under the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and as the World Health Organization (WHO) laboratory for apoA-I, apoB and Lp(a) standardization. 

Nutrition Obesity Research Center (NORC)

The Nutrition Obesity Research Center promotes and enhances interdisciplinary nutrition research and education by providing a number of Core Facilities that support the nutritional research across multiple divisions, departments and schools at the UW.  It integrates and coordinates the abundant nutritional research activities with the goals of fostering new interdisciplinary research collaborations and stimulating new research activities.

Diabetes Research Center (DRC)

The Diabetes Research Center is one of 18 centers sponsored by the National Institutes of Health to promote basic, translational, and clinical research on diabetes and related metabolic disorders. It also provides a number of Core Services to a wide and interdisciplinary group of investigators interested in diabetes research.
