The Sabri Ülker Center for Nutrient, Genetic, and Metabolic Research was established at the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health in 2014 thanks to a generous $24 million commitment from the Ülker Family of İstanbul, Turkey, to support the research of Professor Gökhan S. Hotamışlıgil and his laboratory within the Department of Molecular Metabolism.
