The David and Deborah Winston Fellowship in Diabetes Research was funded in 2012 for a graduate student doing research in laboratories of the Diabetes Diseases.

The fellowship is now awarded annually from the Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Lipid Research to an outstanding graduate student who has shown great promise in diabetes research. It provides $5,000 in support to the activities of the recipient.
