City of Hope National Medical Center Presents: Finding a Cure: A World without Type 1 Diabetes

A cure for type 1 diabetes within six years? It is an audacious goal, but that’s the commitment made by City of Hope, a designated comprehensive care center with a long history of groundbreaking work in diabetes (including the development of synthetic insulin). Fueled by a $50 million funding program led by the Wanek family, City of Hope is embarking on research that will investigate novel immunotherapy approaches and study methods of boosting and replacing insulin-secreting beta cells. The premise is that integrated solutions offer the best hope of conquering this complex, multi-faceted disease.
