HIGHLIGHTS & NEWS

  • The Boettcher Foundation​ Board of Trustees announced its 2015 class of Boettcher Investigators in the Webb-Waring Biomedical Research Awards program. There are six new Boettcher Investigators, including Dr. Melanie Green. As part of the program, each Boettcher Investigator will receive a grant of $225,000 to cover up to three years of biomedical research activity.
  • Researchers from the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes are featured in the current issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). The international team found that daily dose of insulin resulted in an immune response without hypoglycemia, pointing toward the need for further trials to see if it is possible to develop a vaccine for the disease.
  • In a separate article in the same issue of JAMA, a team of researchers from CU SOM (led by Arleta Rewers, MD, PhD) found an increase in the number of children, who at the time of diagnosis with type 1 diabetes, have diabetic ketoacidosis, a life-threatening complication that involves dangerously high blood sugar and substances in the blood called ketones.
  • Dr. Andrea Steck is the recipient of the American Diabetes Association Thomas R. Lee Award for her ADA-funded research project: “Determinants of rate of progression to type 1 diabetes".
