Key Publications

  • In a 2009 special issue of Journal of American Medical Association dedicated to diabetes, we published a key article highlighting research with human islet cells — its importance, its limitations and its potential for better treating or preventing the disease. The same paper was selected for presentation at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.
  • In a second publication in JAMA, this time a research letter in 2012, we focused on the human pancreas. Our study documented the extent to which type 1 diabetes seems to degrade the organ, which weighs less in people with type 1 diabetes and in those with biomarkers that precede the disease’s manifestation compared to individuals in the control group.
