Diabetes Dilemma

Several Northwestern researchers are working on different ways to make islet transplantation more effective. What if, for example, new materials could help protect the islets and integrate them into the body? Under the umbrella of the Institute for Bionanotechnology in Medicine (IBNAM), three McCormick faculty members are working with professors and surgeons at the Feinberg School of Medicine on three different approaches to the islet transplantation dilemma.
