10th Anniversary Celebration
For over a half century, UCSF researchers and clinicians have been making breakthrough discoveries that have improved diabetes treatment and care for individuals with diabetes and their families.
Ten years ago, a new, comprehensive Diabetes Center was created that united the research, clinical care and education aspects of diabetes to more rapidly improve the quality of life of those living with diabetes. In these past ten years, we’ve accelerated our basic research efforts and have aggressively pursued promising clinical research to help generate new treatments for this disease.
To celebrate our worldwide partnership of researchers, clinicians, collaborators, supporters, and donors, we held our 10th Anniversary Celebration on September 24 and 25, 2010 in San Francisco.
Two very successful public events were held:
10th Anniversary Scientific Symposium
Pediatric Diabetes Family Fun Day & Educational Program
In honor of this year's 10th Anniversary, a video was produced that highlights the progress we've made in research, clinical care and education. We invite you to watch this special presentation.
Selected Presentations from the Event
