Brehm Professors

The two named professorships below were made possible by generous gifts from Bill and Dee Brehm, whose personal mission is to apply the tools of research and analysis to find and deliver a cure for type 1 diabetes.

In addition to the U-M Brehm professorships and investigators, Bill and Dee also have provided significant support for other University of Michigan diabetes efforts, such as the creation of the University of Michigan Comprehensive Diabetes Center. With these actions, the Brehms have armed the University of Michigan with the most advanced resources in the fight against diabetes.
