Dr. Richard Bergman

Richard Nathan Bergman, PhD, is director of the Cedars-Sinai Diabetes and Obesity Research Institute, and a distinguished research scientist. with Cedars-Sinai’s Department of Biomedical Sciences and its Department of Medicine.

Prior to joining Cedars-Sinai Dr. Bergman served at the University of Southern California as the Keck Professor of Medicine and chair of the Department of Physiology and Biophysics, as well as professor of medicine and biomedical engineering at USC’s Keck School of Medicine.

An influential diabetes researcher for more than three decades with more than 300 peer-reviewed published papers, Bergman pioneered the use of engineering technology to understand mechanisms leading to development of diabetes.

Dr. Richard Bergman, Parts 5 & 6 – The Diabetes and Obesity Research Institute, Blood Pressure Vs. Blood Glucose

To wrap up this series, we present the final two installments of the conversation between Diabetes in Control Publisher Steve Freed and Dr. Richard Bergman. In part 5, Steve learns more about the institute founded and led by Dr. Bergman at Cedars-Sinai. In part 6, Steve asks what is more important — blood pressure or blood glucose levels?
