I recently interviewed JDRF's Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Richard Insel. We covered a lot of areas including: islet cell transplants as a cure; the artificial pancreas project to help people with type 1 diabetes manage their disease more effectively; and the possibility of developing a vaccine for small children so that future generations won't develop the disease at all. He provided some great insights into where JDRF and type 1 research overall is headed. You can read his interview here.
