Our department houses an active group of researchers, educators, and trainees dedicated to understanding how maintenance of metabolic health combats the development and progression of chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

We maintain active engagement with other programs within University of Utah Health and endeavor to translate new research findings into clinical procedures and community outreach programs that improve quality of life. We welcome you to peruse our website to get a sense of the breadth of our research interests, degree programs, and outreach initiatives.
