Our Scientific Review Committee of Diabetes Experts

Each research project on this site has been thoroughly vetted for novelty and scientific merit by our Scientific Review Committee (SRC). Our SRC is comprised of 80+ diabetes experts, including directors of major diabetes centers across the country.

These established scientists recognize how difficult it is for young researchers to secure funding for most projects. They volunteer their time and share their expertise to encourage innovative diabetes research.
