    Abstract

    Many diseases and disorders that disproportionately impact the health of minority populations in the United States receive high priority in NIDDK research areas. These include diabetes, obesity, nutrition-related disorders, hepatitis C, gallbladder disease, H. pylori infection, sickle cell disease, kidney diseases, diseases of the prostate, and complications from infection with the human immunodeficiency virus. The NIDDK gives increased priority to support research and to encourage specific efforts in these areas of health disparity in order to advance the foundation of knowledge in the biomedical sciences. The strategic vision that guides NIDDK is improved health and quality of life for all Americans, through basic, clinical, and behavioral research to address the diseases and disorders within the Institute’s statutory research mandate.
