Fleischer Institute for Diabetes and Metabolism

The Fleischer Institute for Diabetes and Metabolism (FIDAM) is named in honor of Dr. Norman Fleischer, an internationally recognized authority on diabetes treatment and research. Dr. Fleischer was the founding director of the NIH-funded Einstein Diabetes Research Center, which has had a major impact on the field of diabetes research and treatment. As chief of a world-renowned endocrinology division, Dr. Fleischer trained and mentored generations of fellows, medical students, residents, and researchers. He was also an outstanding clinician, committed to improving the lives of countless patients, including those in underserved populations.

The newly formed Fleischer Institute for Diabetes and Metabolism will serve as a major hub for discovery by conducting cutting-edge basic, clinical, and translational research. Moreover, the Institute will offer unique and innovative programs for the care of diabetes and metabolic disorders and will continue Dr. Fleischer’s work of uncovering the molecular mechanisms underlying type 1 and type 2 diabetes and translating them into novel therapies.
