Human pluripotent stem cells have the potential to transform themselves into all the different kinds of cells of the body, including the cells of the pancreas that produce insulin. Harnessing this potential through cell transplants could revolutionize diabetes treatment. The new insulin source would help patients manage their blood sugar levels, potentially eliminating the need for insulin injections by syringe or pump.

It’s Not the Learning Environment, It’s THE Environment

For the second year in a row, we start our academic year amid a global pandemic. We find ourselves welcoming new students through screens as many orientations are occurring online. Some in-person classes will soon begin, while other courses will be delivered virtually. Thanks to high vaccinations rates, careful precautions – including improved classroom ventilation – and diligent planning, in-person learning is possible once again. Unfortunately, COVID 19 still impacts our ability to do so fully. 

Giving Back

The impact of donor support begins by enhancing the work of our clinicians, researchers and trainees but then resonates throughout the health-care system and ultimately serves to improve human health.
