Type 1 Diabetes: from Cubism to a cure | Robin Goland | TEDxMet
Dr. Robin Goland challenges us to see something in a whole new way. Robin is a medical doctor leading the charge to cure diabetes. Her work combines research with clinical care in a groundbreaking approach to medicine.
Robin Goland, MD leads one of the nation’s most successful efforts to advance patient care, research, and education in the field of diabetes. The Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center at Columbia University Medical Center opened in October 1998 under the direction of Dr. Goland and co-director Dr. Rudolph Leibel, combining premier family-centered patient care and education with world-class diabetes research programs. Today more than 1500 patients with diabetes are seen monthly. The clinical space is directly adjacent to research laboratories working on the prevention, treatment, and ultimately cure of diabetes.
