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

Our Vision – To improve the wellness of children and their families living with type 2 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 clinical studies of children 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.

leading to poor health
for our youth.

" We need to provide as many positive outcomes for Youth
as Possible. "

" Consider wholistic models of health, not just the physical side. "
