Our Vision 

The theme of our COBRE and support of our cores will set the stage for KU Medical Center to become a national leader in translational obesity, metabolism and obesity-related disease research. 

Our Mission 

This center will bring together existing research programs, create critical new core facilities, train a new generation of researchers and leverage both institutional and department resources for recruitment and research development in the areas of obesity, metabolism and obesity-related disease. 

"Our No. 1 goal is to improve human health. And part of that will be addressing obesity in all of its manifestations with a robust group of investigators."
