3. Cure

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) occurs when the body's own immune system misguidedly attacks and destroys certain cells in the pancreas, an organ about the size of a hand that is located behind the lower part of the stomach. These cells – called beta cells – are contained, along with other types o...


4. Immune Therapies Research

JDRF is actively supporting research to better understand the process leading to the misguided immune attack on the beta cells (the autoimmune attack) and potential therapeutic interventions at each stage of human type 1 diabetes (T1D). While there have been many recent advances in the use of genera...


5. Regeneration Research

In contrast to replacement of beta cells using outside sources of cells, which involves a surgical transplant procedure, internal regeneration of beta cells has the potential to restore beta cell function in large numbers of individuals using drug-based approaches. JDRF has prioritized funding of be...


6. Replacement Research

Replacement of functional beta cells by either whole pancreas or islet transplantation from another source has established proof of concept that restoration of functional beta cells along with immunosuppression therapy has the potential to restore insulin independence. This success, however, is hamp...


7. JDRF Funded Research Advances Potential For Regeneration As A Possible Cure For Type 1 Diabetes

NEW YORK, February 2, 2010 -- A hormone responsible for the body's stress response is also linked to the growth of insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, according to JDRF- funded researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in California.  The findings are the latest advances to ...
