Last week, we were incredibly honored to award Margie Teller with the Donald F. Steiner Award for Generous Support of Diabetes Research.

The Steiner Award, established in 2006 by the UChicago Medicine Diabetes Research and Training Center, also honors an investigator carrying out outstanding research in the field of diabetes each year. The award is named for the late Donald F Steiner, MD, a pioneering diabetes investigator at the University of Chicago.

Margie Teller is the founder and chair of Friends for the Cure, a grassroots organization that has raised nearly $3 million dollars to support diabetes research in Chicago. Friends for the Cure's 10th gala, Mission: Possible, will be on September 23rd, 2017 and all proceeds will go directly to diabetes researchers at Kovler. This award is a small token of our thanks for all that Margie has done to advance our research!
