Availability of Retired Cases for Assay Validation and Generation of Preliminary Data
The JDRF nPOD has now available a couple of cases that have been retired for distribution to research projects, but can be used for assay validation or generation of preliminary data. Reasonable amounts of materials can be requested, using the tissue request form. These specimens are available to approved nPOD investigators and to investigators who do not yet have a project approved by nPOD. For example, such specimens could be used to validate an antibody stain in human pancreas, when the investigator has not yet examined human tissues. When requesting such tissues, please provide a short justification and specify quantities, again using the tissue request form is preferable.

The JDRF-nPOD Scientists Who Seek the Cure for T1D
Each month, we highlight one of the nPOD investigators. Thanks to the fundraising of all the JDRF chapters, these scientists are able to have access to nPOD samples for their work. We’ll let them introduce themselves, tell you about their research, and their lives.
