The Diabetes Research and Treatment Centre (DRTC) is an interdisciplinary centre whose function is to promote research, education and treatment aspects of diabetes in this province. Although initially established in 1996 within the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Manitoba, it is anticipated that the Diabetes Research and Treatment Centre will develop broad support from many different communities and organizations within the province of Manitoba and beyond. In 2005, DRTC moved to Massey College at the University of Toronto, which houses the administrative office. From this base, DRTC developed collaborative programs with Massey College and co-sponsored a number of events in major university centres in collaboration with Friends of CIHR.
