Virginia med school hires $8M diabetes researcher
Eastern Virginia Medical School’s (EVMS) department of internal medicine has hired Jerry Nadler with an $8 million package in the hopes that he will bring in even more in research dollars, new talent and better healthcare, particularly for diabetics and those with cardiovascular disease.

Nadler, previously from the University of the Virginia in Charlottesville, said he was seeking funding and FDA approval to test the treatment for type 1 diabetes in humans that in earlier research has proven successful in mice.

He said that he expects the clinical trials will take place in 2009.
