Appointment of Dr. Itamar Raz of Hadassah Medical Center strengthens board’s medical and research expertise.

Dr. Raz expands the size of LabStyle’s board to seven directors, and he will serve on the Compensation Committee of the board. He will continue to lead LabStyle’s Scientific Advisory Committee. LabStyle made this announcement from the American Diabetes Association’s 73rd Scientific Sessions, which is underway at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago.

Dr. Raz is a world-renowned leader in diabetes treatment and research, and is an advisor to leading companies in the field. He currently serves as a professor of internal medicine at Hadassah University Medical Center in Israel and is head of the Diabetes Unit and Research Center at Hadassah. He is also the head of the Israel National Council of Diabetes of the Israel Ministry of Health, which is responsible for formulating national policies, the President of D-Cure, a diabetes not-for-profit organization, and the head of the Israel Diabetes Research Group.

“Dr. Raz strengthens our Board of Directors with his deep expertise in diabetes as a researcher, professor and tireless advocate for better treatment,” said Dr. Oren Fuerst, LabStyle’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “He is highly visible and well regarded in the diabetes community worldwide, and will be a valuable asset to our company as we seek to bring the many benefits of Dario to diabetics around the world.”

Commenting on his appointment, Dr. Raz said, “New tools and treatments for diabetics will help to contain the devastating impact of the growing diabetes epidemic. Information is the first step in improving outcomes. Dario is an innovative device and data-management system that I believe will catalyze more frequent testing due to its all-in-one design, while its many features, including the ability to share data in real-time with caregivers, will enable personalized care. In addition web-based social interactions between patients catalyzed by Dario create the potential for significant benefits through greater patient compliance.”

At Hadassah Hebrew University Hospital, Dr. Raz is currently leading several international clinical studies involving prevention and treatment of type 1 diabetes. Dr. Raz has published extensively on diabetes with more than 190 publications to his credit, and he also serves as a member of several medical editorial boards. Dr. Raz has organized several international meetings on diabetes, the largest being CODHy – Controversies in Obesity, Diabetes and Hypertension.

Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism
Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.
Individuals' Medical Histories Predicted by their Noncoding Genomes
Researchers have found that analyzing mutations in regions of the genome that control genes can predict medical conditions such as hypertension, narcolepsy and heart problems.
'Molecular Movie' Opens Door to New Cancer Treatments
An international team of scientists led by the University of Liverpool has produced a 'structural movie' revealing the step-by-step creation of an important naturally occurring chemical in the body that plays a role in some cancers.
Custom Tuning Knobs to Turn Off Any Gene
Factory managers can improve productivity by telling workers to speed up, slow down or stop doing tangential tasks while assembling widgets. Unfortunately for synthetic biologists attempting to produce pharmaceuticals, microbes don’t respond to direction like human personnel.
Unique Mechanism for a High-Risk Leukemia
Researchers uncovered the aberrant mechanism underlying a notoriously treatment-resistant acute lymphoblastic leukemia subtype; findings offer lessons for understanding all cancers.
Genetically Mapping the Most Lethal E.Coli Strains
New approach could lead to fewer deaths, and new treatments.
The Spice of Life
Scientists discover important genetic source of human diversity.
Cytoskeleton Crew
Findings confirm sugar's role in helping cancers survive by changing cellular architecture.
Removing Race from Human Genetic Research
A group of scientists are urging their colleagues to take a step forward and stop using racial categories when researching and studying human genetics.
Biomarker for Recurring HPV-Linked Oropharyngeal Cancers
A look-back analysis of HPV infection antibodies in patients treated for oropharyngeal (mouth and throat) cancers linked to HPV infection suggests at least one of the antibodies could be useful in identifying those at risk for a recurrence of the cancer, say scientists at the Johns Hopkins University.
