Diabetes Research Institute

A World Leader in Diabetes Cure-Focused Research


The Diabetes Research Institute leads the world in cure-focused research. As the largest and most comprehensive research center dedicated to curing diabetes, the DRI is aggressively working to shrink the timeline toward the discovery of a biological cure for this disease.

Since its inception, the DRI has made significant contributions to the field of diabetes, pioneering many of the techniques used in diabetes centers around the world. Having already shown that diabetes can be reversed through islet transplantation, the DRI is building upon these promising outcomes by developing the BioHub, a mini-organ to deliver real insulin in real time. The DRI also collaborates with other leading researchers worldwide to develop and test new approaches to restore natural insulin production.
