  • Heritability of Diabetes-related DNA Methylation in Latinos Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz., Rochester, Minn.

    The purpose of this study is to find the inheritable changes in genetic makeup that are related to the development of type 2 diabetes in Latino families.

  • Immunomodulatory Role of Eosinophils in Determining Inflammation and Insulin Sensitivity in Human Adipose Tissue- Aims 1&2 Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz.

    This study is being done to better understand the relationship between inflammation and insulin resistance in your Adipose (fat) Tissue .

  • Investigating the Effect of Obesity on Eosinophil Recruitment in Human Adipose Tissue Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz.

    To determine whether EOS recruitment in AT is impaired during obesity. Therefore, we hypothesize that chronic, low-grade inflammation of AT initiates epigenetic modifications in EOS and/or in AT, thereby impairing the recruitment of eosinophils.

  • Molecular Regulation of Muscle Glucose Metabolism Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz.

    This protocol is being conducted to determine the mechanisms responsible for insulin resistance, obesity and type 2 diabetes.

  • Sangre Por Salud Biobank Rochester, Minn., Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz.

    There are two purposes for this project.

    • One purpose of this project is to develop information about Latinos in the Maricopa County area who may be interested in participating in future research studies about health.

    • A second purpose is that researchers at Mayo Clinic are developing a new research resource called a Biobank. A Biobank is a collection of blood samples and other information. Participants in the Biobank provide samples of blood, complete a health questionnaire, and allow access to medical records now and in the future. A Biobank is as a library for researchers; instead of having to look for volunteers for each new project, researchers can use samples from the Biobank as well as share information already collected.
