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?
Dr. Bergman is the founder and director of Diabetes and Obesity Research Institute, Biomedical Sciences at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles. He introduced the use of engineering principles to understand the pathogenesis of diabetes. Dr. Bergman was awarded the Albert Renold Award at the American Diabetes Association’s 75th Scientific Sessions in Boston for a career distinguished by outstanding achievements in the training and mentorship of diabetes research scientists, and in the facilitation of diabetes research.
