The Integrated Program in Endocrinology (iPEnd) was founded in 2016 in order to bring together endocrinology researchers across the University of Wisconsin – Madison. The goal of iPEnd is to foster collaborative research in endocrinology by leveraging interdisciplinary interactions, area expertise and shared resources.
iPEnd brings together a unique grouping of general and reproductive endocrinology researchers in order to better understand not only the effects of general endocrinology and reproductive endocrinology on human health, but also the fetal origins of adult onset diseases. Specifically, many of the diseases beginning in pregnancy that limit fetal development are now known to manifest themselves in adulthood as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and renal failure. The research that comes out of this collaborative research program targets NICHD and NIDDK research interests.
