In June 2009, the University of Michigan Comprehensive Diabetes Center opened the most advanced diabetes clinic in the area — a building where patients have access to progressive, effective care and a full range of diabetic services in one location. Then in April 2010, we inaugurated a premier diabetes research facility — where cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research takes place and scientists conduct studies that define the future of diabetes treatment.
State-of-the-art clinic at Domino's Farms
The University of Michigan’s Division of Metabolism, Endocrinology & Diabetes (MEND) main clinic is in the Domino’s Farms complex in northeast Ann Arbor. This relocation to a much larger facility allows us to offer better, more comprehensive and coordinated care for our patients! The new clinic serves adults who have diabetes mellitus; osteoporosis; abnormalities of the thyroid, adrenal, or the pituitary gland; or other hormone-related issues, as well as adult podiatry patients.

Uniting diabetes researchers in the new Brehm Center
Thanks to the generosity of Bill and Dee Brehm, in March 2010 the Brehm Tower opened. This facility houses our U-M Brehm Center for Diabetes Research as well as the expansion of the U-M Kellogg Eye Center's clinical and research facilities.
The Brehm Center unites top diabetes researchers from around the university and, virtually, from around the world. Their research is supported by state-of-the-art information technology, which allows them to explore and collaborate like never before. This facility provides a hub for the multidisciplinary search for ways to prevent and reverse of all forms of diabetes and its complications.
