Our Centers

Participating centers are University of Michigan at Ann Arbor; University of California, San Francisco; University of Pittsburgh; and University of Arizona. There are three satellite sites University of Southern California; Beth Isarel Deaconess Medical Center; and Northwell Health. The University of Michigan also serves as the data coordinating center for the study and the Biomarker Analysis Unit (BAU).

The 4 clinical research sites and additional satellites sites will recruit participants who are undergoing foot ulcer treatment or follow-up care. Each biomarker will be tested in its own study within the larger network. Researchers will collect various measurements, biological samples, and other data over 5 years. In addition, the DFC will build a roadmap and framework that will provide an opportunity for researchers to follow up interesting leads or pursue new studies.
