Diabetes and Obesity Institute
The Penn State Institute for Diabetes and Obesity (PSIDO) is a collaboration of scientists, health care providers, patients and friends whose goal is to increase the scientific and medical knowledge needed to eradicate obesity and diabetes and help those with obesity and diabetes to live better lives.
PSIDO seeks to provide Penn State researchers with resources to better conduct their studies. Our research is organized under four research areas, referred to as programmatic areas. Growth of cross-campus multi-investigator collaborations are facilitated through administrative and other support provided to our members. PSIDO members have access to resources including seed grants, human subject recruitment resources, and opportunities to share research ideas with other Penn State researchers in a collaborative environment.
