Hi-Tech Diabetes Research Facility To Be Launched At Chennai
A state-of-the-art research centre will be set up by the Madras Diabetes Research Foundation (MDRF) to study diabetes among Indians and Asians of Indian origin.

The institute will be established in collaboration with Emory University, based in Atlanta, US.

The Dean of Emory's Rollins School of Public Health, James Curran, said the collaboration would be for a three-year period. Based on the success of the programme, it could be extended further.

The centre will come up at Siruseri on Chennai's southern outskirts.

"It will be a research hub for epidemiological research in the country," president of MDRF V. Mohan told the media. "This will also help us to take up intervention trials on prevention of diabetes and its complications throughout South Asia and globally", he added.

India has over 40 million diabetes patients
