UNC an interdisciplinary leader in type I and type II diabetes research and clinical care
With diabetes being such a complex clinical and public health issue, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's School of Medicine has taken an interdisciplinary approach to become a leader in type I and type II diabetes research and clinical care.
UNC was ranked 6th in federal research dollars in the U.S. in 2017, as well as having 6 basic science departments in the top ten for NIH funding.
