The American Diabetes Association has awarded one of six prestigious Pathway to Stop Diabetes grant awards to Phillip James White, PhD, a post-doc in the Duke Molecular Physiology Institute, for his project "A New Homeostatic Mechanism for Metabolic Control."

The award comes with $1.625 million in grant funding over a five-to-seven-year grant term, along with career support and resources so the scientists can focus their considerable talents on transformational research approaches to treat and stop diabetes.

The Duke Molecular Physiology Institute has close ties with the Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Nutrition.

Dr. White's mentor is Chris Newgard, PhD.
