Summer 2013 Update

Director's Note

griffinrodgers.jpgIn November, we lost a giant in the world of diabetes research. Dr. George Eisenbarth was a friend, colleague and mentor to many, and an example of how much one person can improve the health of multitudes. In late March, I had the honor of speaking at a memorial for him and seeing just a few of the people who cared about him and who have taken as their own his goal of curing type 1 diabetes.
To look at George’s life’s work is to see clearly how far a research career can resonate. George achieved one of life’s greatest accomplishments – he had a positive and profound effect on people’s lives, including many of those who never knew him.
