Our Team

DREAM was founded in 2011 under the leadership of Dr. Jonathan McGavock and Dr. Grant Hatch as the 2nd research theme of the Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba.

The vision was a translational research team, focused on improving knowledge about youth onset type 2 diabetes from the laboratory into the clinic, and community and back. Our team has focused on understanding risk from conception to young adulthood.  The team has since grown, with expanded expertise in type 1 diabetes, and diabetes in pregnancy, as well as a broader expertise in metabolism and epigenetics.
