The American Diabetes Association (ADA) is awarding a total of $3.25m to two researchers to support breakthroughs in science, technology, care and potential cures in the field of diabetes.
Judith Agudo, from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Massachusetts, will look at ‘Harnessing immune privilege mechanisms from stem cells to protect beta-cells from immune attack’. Maxence V Nachury, from the University of California, will look at the ‘Regulation of body weight homeostasis and beta cell function by primary cilia’.
The funding comes from the Pathway to Stop Diabetes grants, and both researchers will receive $1.625m over five years. Learn more about the funding programme and the research of both Dr Agudo and Dr Nachury here.
