2022 Albert Renold Award
Jane EB Reusch, MD
Jane EB Reusch, MD is a Professor of Medicine, Bioengineering and Integrative Physiology, Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Diabetes, Associate Director of the Center for Women’s Health Research, Co-Director of the UC NIH Diabetes Research Center, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and staff physician and merit investigator at the Rocky Mountain Regional VAMC. She is an elected member of American Society for Clinical Investigation, American Association of Physicians, American Diabetes Association 2018 President for Medicine and Science and Fellow of the American Heart Association. She is currently working with the ADA, AHA and ACC on global strategies to decrease the cardiovascular burden of diabetes.
A physician-scientist, Dr. Reusch has made fundamental contributions to our understanding of cellular metabolism of diabetes and its complications. The focus of her basic science program is to identify the cellular and molecular mechanisms (i.e. mitochondrial dysfunction and vascular inflexibility) that contribute to cardiac, vascular, and skeletal muscle dysfunction in diabetes. Her shared clinical translational research program with Drs Judy Regensteiner and Kristen Nadeau examines and targets the biological variables in people with diabetes, particularly women, that lead to decreased functional exercise capacity and shortened lifespan. She is dedicated to recruiting and mentoring the translational research workforce, especially in women’s health and diabetes. She is co-founder of WIN-ADA and the recipient of the 2022 Endocrine Society Laureate Award for Mentorship.
Please join us in celebrating Jane EB Reusch, MD for outstanding contributions to the training of diabetes research scientists.
