Today we will have the interview of the Vice President of the Diabetes Research Institute and the father of 2 type 1 diabetic kids.
The Diabetes Research Institute (DRI) http://www.diabetesresearch.org is the largest and most comprehensive diabetes research center dedicated to curing diabetes, the DRI is aggressively working to shrink the timeline toward the discovery of a biological cure for this disease. Their multidisciplinary teams of scientists, together with international collaborators, are bridging cell-based therapies with emerging technologies to restore insulin production in patients with diabetes.
