Statement of Purpose
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a devastating disease. As a result of changing lifestyles and increasing life-span, the incidence of diabetes is increasing, approaching epidemic proportions; in the older population, the prevalence of diabetes ranges between 10-20%.

The costs of managing DM is staggering. Individuals have to cope with increased expenditures for medications and treatment together with a declining income due to decreased productivity. A significant portion of the national health budget is devoted to the care of diabetic-related complications including blindness, renal failure, amputations, and accelerated cardiovascular disease.
