The center comprises more than 100 faculty across multiple schools, colleges, and departments and supports researchers through the recruitment of research-intensive faculty, distribution of pilot grants, organization of symposia and seminars, and management of training grants. The successful applicant will also have access to outstanding research services (e.g. Utah Population Database, Center for Clinical & Translational Science, etc.), access to clinical data from the University of Utah Comprehensive Weight Management Program and Utah Diabetes and Endocrinology Center, and the ability to leverage resources from the Driving Out Diabetes initiative, a strategic initiative to reduce the burden of diabetes and the associated medical comorbidities of obesity and heart disease through clinical, research, and community engagement programs.
