Last week, we were incredibly honored to award Margie Teller with the Donald F. Steiner Award for Outstanding Achievement in Diabetes Research.

The Steiner Award, established in 2006 by the The University of Chicago Medicine Diabetes Research and Training Center, honors an investigator carrying out outstanding research in the field of diabetes. 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!

Say hello to our awesome Metabolism graduate students!

The Committee on Molecular Metabolism is a PhD granting program training the next generation of researchers in the study of metabolic diseases at the University of Chicago Medicine. It is administratively housed in the Section of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism but acts as a focal point for clinical and basic science researchers throughout the Biological Sciences Division with an interest in metabolism based research. The graduate students in the program thus can conduct their thesis work on basic, clinical and/or translational research areas.

Kovler has previously funded these graduate students and their research.
