Brehm Center for Diabetes Research

Brem Faculty and Staff

The Brehm Center for Diabetes Research was named for Bill and Delores (Dee) Brehm, a couple whose generosity and dedication in finding a cure has led to an all-out assault on type 1 diabetes. Their $44 million dollar gift to the University of Michigan, along with their dedication and hard work, has already catalyzed a new and different framework for type 1 diabetes research that is based on laboratory and clinical discovery and collaboration. Dee, who has lived with type 1 diabetes since 1949, believes a cure can be found — and she and Bill believe it can be found sooner, rather than later.
