Diabetes and Obesity Research

The East Carolina Diabetes and Obesity Institute (ECDOI) is an interdisciplinary research institute jointly supported by the Divisions of Health Sciences and Research & Graduate Studies. The ECDOI is well known for cutting-edge collaborative research in several fields related to disorders of metabolism, including bariatric surgery, muscle insulin signaling/glucose transport, bioenergetics/exercise physiology, and pediatric healthy weight programs. Although we do not directly provide clinical services for the treatment of diabetes and obesity, below you find some of the resources available at East Carolina University and Vidant Medical Center.
