Invitation to Submit Reviews of nPOD Cases in “Clinical Images” in Diabetes Care

In their July 2016 issue, Diabetes Care introduced a new manuscript category called “Clinical Images in Diabetes”. We are honored that the first article in the “Clinical Images in Diabetes” series features a review of nPOD case #6196, as written by our own Dr. Laura Jacobsen: “Presumptive Type 1 Diabetes With Comorbidities and Rapid Progression Despite Numerous Insulin-Positive Islets”. We invite all nPOD Investigators to submit articles highlighting nPOD cases to the “Clinical Images” series in Diabetes Care.

Click here to read more about this exciting new opportunity, and to see which nPOD cases are already under review or have been published in “Clinical Images in Diabetes”.

UMMS  Researchers Isolate Immune Cells From the Islets of Donors with Type 1 Diabetes

As recently published in Nature Medicine, nPOD Investigators at UMMS have developed the first large bank of islet-infiltrating T cells isolated from the islets of human donors with T1D. Their findings have direct implications for the design of therapies and preventative strategies for those with T1D and those at-risk for developing it. This work is the result of a collaborative effort made by many Investigators around the world, including those in nPOD’s Autoimmunity Working Group. Congratulations to all involved on this significant achievement!
