Joslin Diabetes Center awards 1st Mary K. Iacocca Faculty Fellowship

BOSTON -- Joslin Diabetes Center announced today that Ulrich H. von Andrian, M.D., Ph.D, is the first scientist to receive the new Mary K. Iacocca Faculty Fellowship at Joslin Diabetes Center. Dr. von Andrian is a Professor of Pathology at Harvard Medical School and Senior Investigator at the CBR Institute for Biomedical Research.

The Mary K. Iacocca Faculty Fellowship, a one-year sabbatical with a $100,000 stipend, was made possible by a generous grant from the Iacocca Foundation endowment at Joslin, and is designed to attract senior scientists to Joslin to study broad areas of type 1 and type 2 diabetes and related complications.

"With this new faculty fellowship position, our goal is to reach into alternate fields of science, medicine and engineering to introduce new ideas and technologies to diabetes research," said George L. King, M.D., Director of Research at Joslin Diabetes Center, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, and chairman of the Fellowship selection process. "Following a competitive review of over 50 applications from around the globe, we are delighted to name Dr. von Andrian as our first Mary K. Iacocca Faculty Fellow, and with the opportunity this affords us to apply his exciting research in cell imaging to diabetes."

Dr. von Andrian was selected for this fellowship, in part, for his breakthrough microscopy methods of using intra-vital imaging technology, which enable scientists to view cell processes in live animals and to see how one cell interacts with other cells in the body. Studying live-cell samples is a new approach in diabetes research and holds considerable promise for many fields of study, including islet cell transplantation (islet cells are the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas), immunology, muscle and fat metabolism, blood vessel complications and inflammatory diseases.

Dr. von Andrian said the main focus of his fellowship will be to set up a new microsc
