Clinical Trainee Awards

"As an electrical engineer, computer scientist and physician with type 1 diabetes, my primary research interest is the design, development and testing of new diabetes technology and therapies.  I am deeply grateful for the Stanford Maternal and Child Health Research Institute support of my research training.  As a Stephen Bechtel endowed fellow, I can receive dedicated research time to continue my journey as a physician-scientist pursuing translational, clinical and basic science research so that I can help those with diabetes."
