The aim is to stop complications from starting and from progressing, with the hope that the body can repair any damage.
Why is this area of research important?
This area of research is a priority for JDRF because of its strong potential to generate breakthroughs that can help people with diabetes lead healthier lives. In turn, they’ll be in the best possible health to benefit from other cure therapies when available.
