DELIVERy of advanced therapies for diabetes training network

Project description

Novel cell therapies for diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects millions of people worldwide, who have to be administered lifelong injections of insulin. Pancreatic islet transplantation is a very promising alternative therapy that can restore natural production of insulin and ameliorate diabetes symptoms. However, associated challenges demand that many aspects of transplant therapy for diabetes be revisited and optimised. The mission of the EU-funded DELIVER project is to train young researchers in advancing such cellular therapies. The focus is on intramuscular transplantation of pancreatic islets and on strategies to prevent graft rejection. The outcome of the project has great potential to improve the quality of life of diabetes sufferers worldwide.
