There is a firm foundation for diabetes research on the Athens campus, and the Osteopathic Heritage Foundations funding award will facilitate expanded research into this devastating disease.

"In order to enhance that type of research you need an infrastructure - a modern, up-to-date, state-of-the-art infrastructure, and this award is certainly going to help in that arena.," said John Kopchick, PhD, professor of molecular biology at OU-COM.

As a result of this award, the college plans to build a new Diabetes/Endocrine Clinical Treatment Research Center on the Athens campus, which will attract prominent researchers to Athens. The new center will also serve diabetic patients better and enhance programs designed to prepare primary care physicians in diabetes management and research.

Dr. Kopchick, the Goll-Ohio Eminent Scholar, says the commitment by the Osteopathic Heritage Foundations is unique, in that it will impact patients immediately and support research leading to future treatments and cures. "To be able to increase the research capabilities, the clinical capabilities like this, it's a game changer," Dr. Kopchick said.
