Salk's Impact on Your Health

According to the latest figures, nearly 25.8 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes, 7 million of those remain undiagnosed and an estimated 79 million people are at risk of developing the condition. It’s the sixth leading cause of death, and it costs our country more than $116 billion annually in direct medical costs. What is more, the Centers for Disease Control estimate that if current trends continue, by 2050, the number of Americans with diabetes will triple, with a staggering 1 in 3 affected.

At the Salk, one of the world’s preeminent biomedical research institutes, our scientists are gaining critically important new insights into this devastating disease.

Learn about cutting-edge research at the Salk Institute and to discover what laboratory findings may mean for the future of diabetes prevention and treatment.
