Formed in 2007, the KU Diabetes Institute's mission is to advance research leading toward prevention and control of diabetes, as well as an eventual cure for the disease. Researchers and clinicians from the University of Kansas Medical Center, the University of Kansas-Lawrence, and the KU School of Medicine-Wichita form the core of the Institute, and are engaged in a wide range of basic science, translational and clinical research projects centering around diabetes and its complications.

The Institute is also the lead institution in the Midwest Diabetes Coalition - a network of regional academic and clinical institutions, as well as a variety of government and private organizations, working toward prevention and control of diabetes. The clinical arm of the Institute includes the Cray Diabetes Self Management Center, which provides excellent clinical care and education to patients with diabetes and their families.
