Preventing Diabetes

MSI PI Anindya Bagchi (Genetics, Cell Biology, and Genetics and Masonic Cancer Center) is highlighted in a story by the Minnesota Medical Foundation about research that may one day lead to a cure for type 1 diabetes. In diabetes, insulin-making cells in the pancreas die. Along with University researcher Mari Firpo (Stem Cell Institute and Schulze Diabetes Institute), Professor Bagchi is investigating how cell death happens and how it can be stopped.
