UCLA Center for Metabolic Disease Prevention

Center

The Center for Metabolic Disease Prevention brings the best science to bear on the challenge of controlling the global epidemic of metabolic diseases, and provides leadership in metabolic disease prevention through interdisciplinary research, improving patient care, and creating educational initiatives for students, health professionals and the public. This pioneering center is one of the first in the nation to integrate laboratory-based and population-based sciences in studying mechanisms and strategies for metabolic diseases prevention. In doing so, the Center unifies the many strengths and expertise of UCLA's departments and schools to investigate all facets of metabolic diseases, and provides comprehensive multidisciplinary education and research training opportunities for students ranging from "sick" molecules to "sick" populations.
