Congratulations to Drs. Bartholomew Dean, Michael Crawford and PhD candidate, Randy David, on receiving a $100k research award (funded by The Kansas University Diabetes Institute) for their research proposal for pilot funding for research into Diabetes.  Research will focus on human population research into the interrelationship of genetics and the environment that are associated with the prevalence and incidence of insulin resistance, insulin deficiency, metabolic syndrome and obesity/malnutrition in populations at risk for type 1 and/or 2 diabetes (T2DM, T1DM).

The College is planning to share two stories this afternoon (3/19/19), both featuring the wonderful Dr. Katie Rhine: a new episode of our podcast, Unwinding, and a new I Am Seeking faculty research video. I’m including links to both below.
