Our lab is proud to be supported by the American Diabetes Association Pathway to Stop Diabetes initiative.
Pathway to Stop Diabetes® is a bold, innovative initiative designed to radically transform diabetes research. Our vision is simple yet revolutionary: find a new generation of brilliant scientists at the peak of their creativity, then provide them with the freedom, autonomy, and financial and professional resources to set them on the road to breakthrough discoveries.
Today, nearly one in eight American adults has diabetes, and diagnosed diabetes costs the United States $245 billion each year.
If present trends continue, the costs — in lives, lost productivity and hard dollars — will be an enormous personal and societal burden that could overwhelm our healthcare system and bankrupt our nation.
Researchers are making important progress in the fight against this disease, but frankly, it’s not fast enough, it’s not dramatic enough, it’s not good enough. There’s a reason for that: It’s not funded enough.
