Michael David Toft Type 2 Diabetes Research Fund

The Michael David Toft Type 2 Diabetes Research Fund was established to advance type 2 diabetes research through the islet research program and is in memory of Michael who passed away in February 2021. Michael was a proud University of Michigan Wolverine, he studied Microbiology and Medicine at the University of Michigan and was in the top of his class. Unfortunately, he was not able to complete his studies due to his struggle with his diabetes. His dream was to conduct research on diabetes and this fund is being established to honor his wish of pushing research forward towards a cure.
