The DREAM theme was established in 2011, and began formal operations April 1st, 2012.

Our Mission: Grounded in person-centredness and equity, we are a translational diabetes research team, dedicated to improving the wellness of children and families across generations by making discoveries that impact clinical care and health policy.

Our Vision: Improving the world of families and children living with diabetes

We aim to improve the wellness of children and their families living with diabetes by making clinically relevant discoveries (that improve their lives). Using an integrated interdisciplinary approach we will translate discoveries into practice and policy.

We hope that discoveries we make in our research studies can be used to discover new mechanisms that lead to disease. The group of scientists that we have assembled will work closely on all aspects of research to make sure that our discoveries are meaningful to parents and children affected by diabetes. By working closely as a team, we are better able to make our discoveries meaningful and advance our knowledge faster than anything we could do on our own.


DREAM is located on the 5th and 6th floor of the John Buhler Research Centre within the Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba.
