The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation recently awarded its top honors to three noted scientists. The awards were presented at the 2008 Spring Research Review Awards Dinner.

The David Rumbough Award for Scientific Excellence was established in 1974 by the actress Dina Merrill, in honor of her late son, David. It is the highest honor JDRF awards, and is presented annually to researchers for outstanding achievement and commitment to diabetes research and for their service to JDRF. Michael Brownlee, MD, and Michael German, MD, received the 2008 Rumbough Award.

JDRF established the award in 1993 to honor the contributions of Dr. Grodsky's diabetes research at University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) over four decades. This years recipient is Maike Sander, MD.

Of the presentation, Dina Merrill said she was honored to join with you tonight in the presentation of the David Rumbough Award for Scientific Excellence, which was established in honor of my late, beloved son, David.
