UMass Consortium awarded $300,000 from Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Iacocca Foundation
Date:11/1/2007

WORCESTER, Mass.Investigators from the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) will investigate the causes of type 1 diabetes with dual grants from the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and The Iacocca Foundation. The grants, of $150,000 each, will support the research efforts of the UMMS Heat Shock Protein Consortium. Directed by Aldo A. Rossini, MD, the William and Doris Krupp Professor of Medicine and professor of medicine and molecular medicine, the Heat Shock Protein Consortium brings together a unique group of scientists with diverse expertise in the basic sciences.

The innovation and synergy of the Consortium has already provided a mechanism for interaction and productivity in the field of science, explained Dr. Rossini. This synergy, we believe, will permit a new area of discovery by bringing together viewpoints of basic cell biology that are now focusing on the understanding of the pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes.

Heat shock proteins (Hsp) are essential proteins that protect the cell from a wide variety of environmental stresses. However, recent studies have demonstrated that altered Hsp function is associated with the development of a number of diseases, including type 1 diabetes. This funding will provide support for a number of innovative studies across a variety of departments and disciplines that aim to understand the Hsp abnormalities that may lead to the development and progression of type 1 diabetes.

We are committed to supporting young investigators in their development into diabetes-related careers and this important funding will foster creative approaches to the question of the role of cellular stress and autoimmune diabetes, explained Consortium investigator Dale L. Greiner, PhD, professor of medicine.

Better understanding the pathogenesis of diabetes will help accelerate the pace of science leading to cures and treatments for type 1 diabetes and its complications across a range of
