Finding a cure for diabetes can't happen by accident. And it's a marathon not a sprint.
I had a great conversation with Aldo Rossini about the need to attract talented young investigators to the field of diabetes research. He's really scared. Dr. Rossini is worried that his entire life's work will be in vain if we have no one to pass the baton to.
Dedicated doctors, scientists and parents have always needed to lead the charge and keep the momentum going. We need to continually encourage anyone entering the field of sciences to take up this baton until the finish line is reached. They are our future. They are the cure.
