NIDDK Recent Advances and Emerging Opportunities (2011)
The publication, NIDDK Recent Advances & Emerging Opportunities, is a document
that the NIDDK has issued annually since 2001. It is a compendium that highlights
examples of the many research advances published by NIDDK-funded scientists and
their colleagues in the most recent fiscal year, along with the technologies that
made these achievements possible. Thus, most of the research findings described
in the February 2011 compendium were published in fiscal year 2010. In addition
to research advances, the compendium includes:
- "Stories of Discovery," which trace research progress in specific areas
over a much longer period of time;
- "Scientific Presentations," which have been made by eminent researchers
during 2010; and
- Patient Profiles," which recount the personal stories of several patients whose
lives have been adversely affected by disease.
This publication is one means of conveying the important accomplishments that have
resulted from NIDDK-funded research, as well as the enormous promise this research
holds for the future. The examples given here are representative of the much larger
and more diverse research portfolio funded by the NIDDK. This compendium is a web-based
publication, which is also presented to the NIDDK’s National Advisory Council in
printed form each January or February.
