UF to establish Faroe Island research center with help of baseball star

ed that this work could potentially help advance understanding about other common health conditions that affect people across the world."

Damon currently plays for the Cleveland Indians but is perhaps most well-known for his play with the Boston Red Sox when the team won its historic World Series in 2004 and for his five years with the New York Yankees, where the team also won a World Series.

At UF, home to the largest center in the world for the liver forms of glycogen storage disease, Weinstein sees patients with the type III GSD from every continent except Antarctica. He started working with patients on the Faroe Islands in 2008 after meeting a German doctor who frequently visited the country to treat children with the disease. With Weinstein's help, the health of children on the island with the disease has greatly improved, said collaborator Runa Olsen, M.D., a pediatrician at Queen Alexandrine's Hospital on the Faroe Islands.

"It is very exciting, the fact that we are establishing a research community on the island is very good for other diseases, too," Olsen said.
