Sansum Diabetes Research Institute Honors Retiring Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Lois Jovanovic
The Sansum Diabetes Research Institute has announced that after more than 25 years with the institute, Dr. Lois Jovanovic will retire as chief scientific officer.
Dr. Jovanovic will continue working with the institute on a part-time basis as a physician consultant.
Last Friday, in recognition of her pioneering work in gestational diabetes, the Board of Trustees awarded Dr. Jovanovic with the prestigious William D. Sansum Award for Excellence in Science. The award was presented by Jacqueline Wiley, a former patient of Dr. Jovanovic in the 1980s who went on to become a certified clinical research coordinator with the institute.
