Diabetes researcher Herold awarded Star of Hope
Leading Yale diabetes researcher Dr. Kevan Herold has been honored by Connecticut chapters of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) for his commitment to helping improve the lives of people with type 1 diabetes.
The north Central CT/Western MA and Greater New Haven Chapters of the JDRF gave Herold the Star of Hope award for his investigative work in the area of diabetes prevention and treatment. The event also raised thousands of dollars for diabetes research.
Herold is a professor of immunobiology and endocrinology at Yale School of Medicine, and deputy director of translational science for the Yale Center for Clinical Investigation. He is also principal investigator of the Yale Autoimmunity Center of Excellence, one of only nine such National Institutes of Health-designated autoimmunity centers in the country.
