Grunberger Diabetes Institute About Dr. Grunberger

Dr. George Grunberger, received his B.A. (biochemistry) from Columbia College of Columbia University (New York City), M.D. from New York University School of Medicine (New York City), internal medicine training at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio and Endocrinology/Metabolism training in the Diabetes Branch at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland where he then stayed as senior investigator.

Between 1986 and 2002 he established and then directed the Comprehensive Diabetes Programs at both the Detroit Medical Center and Wayne State University School of Medicine. Early in his career, Dr. Grunberger saw the need for a comprehensive diabetes treatment facility where persons with diabetes could receive specialized care and address the many facets of their disease. The Grunberger Diabetes Institute, established in 2002, is the result of his vision.
