Happy DRI Thursday! We are very proud to share that DRI scientists and their collaborators have earned the highest recognition in having their research findings featured on the covers of three of the most prestigious, peer-reviewed scientific journals – Nature Medicine, Cell Metabolism, and Science Translational Medicine. This is a tremendous honor for our scientists and very atypical in the world of academic medicine even at the finest institutions. You can imagine the pride we share with our faculty and staff for these outstanding accomplishments.
This peer-reviewed excellence, which is the product of collaboration between the DRI and the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, demonstrates the strength and productivity of our alliances with other research institutes around the world. Such collaborations have been the hallmark of the Diabetes Research Institute since our inception. Most importantly, scientific collaboration can significantly accelerate research progress which will help us reach a cure sooner for those living with diabetes.
We are particularly proud of our scientists who led the research efforts in these excellent cover stories. We would like to congratulate Rayner Rodriguez-Diaz, along with Drs. Per-Olof Berggren and Alejandro Caicedo, for their outstanding work on the Nature Medicine and Cell Metabolism articles. We would also like to acknowledge Drs. Alessia Fornoni and George W. Burke III for directing the excellent study published in Science Translational Medicine.
Additionally, we are happy to report that a fourth study is scheduled for release next week in the highly-competitive Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). The research efforts in this study were led by Dr. Midhat H. Abdulreda in conjunction with Drs. Per-Olof Berggren, Gaetano Faleo, Antonello Pileggi and Alejandro Caicedo at the DRI. The collaboration also included Dr. Victor L. Perez from the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute.
