Max McGee National Research Center for Juvenile Diabetes
In the following video, Robert Goldstein, MD, PhD, senior vice president at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, is featured at Children's Research Institute's annual symposium.
The Max McGee National Research Center for Juvenile Diabetes at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin was established by the late football legend Max McGee and his wife Denise. Diabetes is prevalent in the McGee family. Max's brother fought diabetes in his lifetime, and today, the McGees' son, Dallas, lives every day with this life-threatening disease. The center was cofounded by the McGees to find a cure not only for their son, but for all people living with diabetes.
The Diabetes Clinic at Children's Hospital is one of the largest in the country, serving more than 1,700 children with type 1 and type 2 diabetes and their families.
Research studies in the center have been funded by Children's Research Institute, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, American Diabetes Foundation and Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Initiative at The Medical College of Wisconsin.
A rich, collaborative environment for clinicians, immunologists, molecular biologists and statisticians is just one feature that makes the center unique, providing opportunity for important discoveries.
