Our People

Developing a cure takes the synergy of brilliant and creative minds, state-of-the-art facilities and robust funding to ensure our scientists can do their work.

The Schulze Diabetes Institute brings it all together, thanks in large part to the world-class talents of our distinguished faculty. Our scientists are international leaders in diabetes research and islet transplantation. And while they work in laboratories and medical facilities, their work remains sharply focused on what it can do for the patient.

Because of our faculty, we are able attract more of the best and brightest to our team, and the funding needed to propel our efforts forward.
