Environmental Biomarkers

The SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth Environmental Biomarkers Workgroup focuses on research of environmental exposures as they relate to etiologic studies and studies of complications secondary to type 1 and type 2 diabetes. The Workgroup serves as a means for investigators to convene and share research interests and identify opportunities for collaboration. The Workgroup is actively collaborating to develop an application for study of exposure to persistent organic pollutants in relation to metabolomic changes as a means of exploring potential pathways in development of disease-associated complications.
