In addition, 7 come from affiliated Universities and Research Institutes. Research Base investigators are united by their focus on developing, implementing, and evaluating evidence-based approaches to prevent and treat diabetes that can be disseminated and sustained in clinical and community settings outside of the traditional academic research setting. Interventions have been directed at patients, providers, practices, health systems, and communities. They have involved non-traditional study designs, novel measurements, and economic analyses;new intervention strategies, tools, and platforms;and a focus on health disparities, cultural competence, and community-based participatory research.
