MDF has partnered with Dr. Nick Johnson, assistant professor of neurology at the University of Utah and MDF Fund A Fellow grant recipient, to collect data on how the lives of women with DM are affected during and after pregnancy.
To support our commitment to DM research, MDF awards fellowship grants to postdoctoral researchers as part of our annual Fund-A-Fellow (FAF) program. We recently caught up with one of our current grant recipients, Dr. Nicholas Johnson, Assistant Professor of Neurology at the University of Utah.
