For 98 years, we have used insulin therapy to treat the symptoms of type 1 diabetes, but there is still no cure for the disease. Developing a cure requires the restoration of healthy pancreas function in a way that avoids the powerful autoimmune attack. NYSCF scientists are leveraging the power of stem cells to create a cell replacement therapy, and using genetic tools to ‘camouflage’ the transplanted cells from the immune system.

Hear from scientists, clinicians, and patient advocates about the latest progress towards this and many routes towards a cure for type 1 diabetes.
