Duke-NUS Part of Diabetic Kidney Disease Consortium

Singapore government creates large collaborative grant

The Duke-NUS Medical School is part of a new consortium that has been awarded more than $18 million (US) by the Singapore Ministry of Health to study diabetic kidney disease. By studying the genes and processes involved in DKD, the group, called DYNAMO, hopes to identify and treat patients earlier and reduce DKD in Singapore by 30 percent in the next five years.
