Patient Stories: Improving Lives

Many Patients Living Insulin Free after Islet Transplants

At the Diabetes Research Institute, we’re helping to dramatically improve the lives of people living with type 1 diabetes. Our diabetes clincial islet transplant trials are benefitting DRI patients right now - and many are living insulin free after receiving a transplant of donor islet cells.

View the stories of our transplant patients who’ve shown the courage and pioneering spirit to take part in Diabetes Research Institute clinical trials.  Click on each one to learn how their participation has improved their lives.
