The BC Diabetes Research Network was established in 2018 with a Grant for Catalyzing Research Clusters (GCRC). We are grateful to the UBC Vice President Research & Innovation and the Provost & Vice-President Academic who have enabled the formation and growth of interdisciplinary clusters of research excellence. The purpose of the Grants for Catalyzing Research Clusters is to support a network of researchers spanning multiple disciplines, departments, institutions to work closely together to solve key challenges facing society.
