The mission of the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation is to provide the Diabetes Research Institute with the funding necessary to cure diabetes now. The Institute's mission is to develop and rapidly apply the most promising research to treat and cure those now living with diabetes.
Scientists from the Diabetes Research Institute (DRI) at the University of Miami are developing a DRI BioHub, a bioengineered "mini organ" that mimics the native pancreas, containing real insulin-producing cells that can sense blood sugar and release the precise amount of insulin needed in real time.
The DRI BioHub brings the promise of restoring natural insulin production and normalizing blood sugar levels in millions living with diabetes one step closer to reality. You can help by supporting the DRI BioHub now!
Here's a clip from the Diabetes Research Institute's annual Walk for Diabetes & Family Fun Day Presented by Walgreens at Marlins Park.
On September 9, 2015, the Diabetes Research Institute announced that the first patient in its clinical trial has been free from insulin injections in record time following the implantation of islet cells within a biological scaffold. Pictured are: Diabetes Research Institute Foundation President and CEO Joshua Rednik and the Diabetes Research Institute's Drs. Camillo Ricordi, director, and Rodolfo Alejandro, director of clinical islet transplantation, with BioHub trial patient Wendy Peacock, who is now free from insulin injections.
