Research That Makes A Difference

We’re devoted to outcome-focused research to better understand the problems and mechanisms of diseases like Diabetes and Dupuytrens. 


Perform research that will significantly benefit patients today.

The Institute is focused on performing outcome-focused research and is not interested in basic research for its own sake.  Outcome-focused research takes basic research principles and findings and applies them to problems promptly without the need for extensive committees and red tape. In short, we endeavor to achieve results faster.
