Working towards the next breakthrough

Erica works in diabetes research at Novo Nordisk

In the film below, Scientific Director of Diabetes Biology, Erica Nishimura, shows us how she takes "little steps every day…" towards the next scientific breakthrough in diabetes care. For Erica, it is the brainstorming in multi-disciplinary teams and reaching out to external experts in the field that gives her the insight she needs to move her research closer to the goal of finding the ultimate therapeutic insulin that only lowers blood glucose when necessary.
