NIDDK Unveils Its Improved Website
The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) has launched a new website! Content for the NIDDK's new website was updated during a trans-institute effort. NIDDK leadership and staff are committed to maintaining the new site so it remains a useful resource for current and potential grantees, fellows, collaborators, media, and the public.

“NIDDK’s health information has always been well received by more than 20 million online users annually,” said NIDDK Deputy Director Gregory Germino, M.D., who helped spearhead the project. “Our goal with the revised website is to provide the same level of clear and current information for researchers.

“Our research community can more easily access current funding and research training opportunities,” Germino said. “The site also highlights important NIDDK-supported basic, clinical, and translational advances in the wide range of acute and chronic diseases and conditions in our mission.”
