This national honor is awarded to a senior investigator whose innovative and cutting-edge clinical, basic or translational research has significantly advanced the field of pediatric endocrinology and earned the nominee international recognition in the field. Winners are chosen from throughout North America.

Glaser was nominated for this honor by UC Davis pediatric endocrinologist Stephanie Crossen.

“This award is extremely well deserved for her years of seminal studies into diabetic ketoacidosis, and so many other areas of investigation into diabetes and pediatric endocrinology in general,” said Dennis Styne, Yocha Dehe Chair of Pediatric Endocrinology at UC Davis Children’s Hospital. “We are so proud of her achievements.”

Glaser holds the Dean’s Endowed Professorship for Childhood Diabetes Research. She is recognized as an international expert in pediatric diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), an important complication of diabetes in children. She has led many of the key multi-center studies that guide DKA management. Glaser has also been involved in the development of several national and international guidelines for DKA management in children that guide current practice worldwide.
