  1. Resource Description
    The IDOM was established in 2005 to address the ever increasing prevalence of diabetes and obesity. In 2016, there were 29.1 million people with diabetes in the United States, and more than one-third of U.S. adults are obese. In 2012, the cost of diabetes was estimated at $245 billion per year, and the Centers for Disease Control has projected that one out of three children born in the year 2000 will develop diabetes in his or her lifetime. The mission of the IDOM is to support and develop successful approaches to the prevention, treatment, and cure of diabetes mellitus and obesity. Our Strategy The leadership of the IDOM embraces a disease-oriented approach that focuses on Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes, Obesity, and Cardiovascular Complications. IDOM enhances and supports research aimed at understanding the genetic, biochemical, molecular, environmental, and behavioral mechanisms underlying diabetes and obesity. IDOM initiatives include critical and unique scientific core facilities, and pilot grants that support new investigators as well as interdisciplinary science involving investigators from Penn Medicine and throughout the University of Pennsylvania that are relevant to the IDOM mission. IDOM also fosters education by organizing a series of seminars, workshops, and symposia. We are proud of the many outstanding discoveries made by IDOM investigators, and are committed to the translation of this new knowledge into novel approaches to patient care. We are also grateful for philanthropy in support of our mission.
