Oregon Health & Science University Press Release, 11.03.09
A new grant from the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust will advance Oregon Health & Science University’s pioneering work in the use of gene and cell therapies to cure Type 1 diabetes – the form of the disease that today is usually controllable only through daily insulin injections. The three-year, $450,000 grant – OHSU's first from the New York­-based trust – will support work by Markus Grompe, M.D., a professor in the OHSU School of Medicine Departments of Pediatrics and Molecular and Medical Genetics.
