We are united in one goal, to cure type 1 diabetes.
OPPORTUNITY: Call for new nPOD
In envisioning the future of nPOD, we recognize a need to expand the program’s current administrative structure to prepare for the next generation of leaders and the need to address emerging scientific objectives. We look forward to welcoming this new individual into our team to help us direct the next era of nPOD research and impact the goal of finding the cause of type 1 diabetes and developing a means to cure it.

Islet Cell Hyperexpression of HLA Class I Antigens: a defining feature in type 1 diabetes
Pancreatic islet cell hyperexpression of HLA class-I was first observed from a small number of autopsy specimens from type 1 diabetes (T1D) patients in the 1980s, but in recent years, this notion was challenged as a potential artifact. Richardson et al. performed immunohistochemistery, immunofluorescence, and Affymetrix array analysis of RNA isolated from microdissected islets to deterimine HLA class-I expression levels in transplant quality pancreata from organ donors with T1D and control subjects without diabetes.
