According to most recent estimates from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than one third of the U.S. adult population has prediabetes. Early interventions that minimize the risk of progression to overt diabetes could therefore have a major impact on individual and population health. Emerging evidence supports an increasingly important role for circadian rhythms in human health and disease. Indeed, the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine was awarded to Drs. Jeffry Hall, Michael Rosbash, and Michael Young “for their discoveries of molecular mechanisms controlling the circadian rhythm.” However, the role of cir ca dian rhythms in diabetes pathogenesis remains poorly understood. Vijay Yechoor, MD, director of the Diabetes and Beta Cell (?-cell) Biology Center at the University of Pittsburgh, is deciphering the mechanisms linking the molecular clock to diabetes progression with the goal of identifying novel pathways to prevent and treat diabetes.
