Science Advance: Engineered Biomaterial for Cell Transplantation may Hold Hope for Type 1 Diabetes

Dr. Andres Garcia with Biosynthetic Hydrogel
ACTSI-supported researchers have made a significant first step with newly engineered biomaterials for cell transplantation that could help lead to a possible cure for Type 1 diabetes, which affects about 3 million Americans. Georgia Tech engineers and Emory University clinicians have successfully engineered biomaterials for cell transplantation that could help lead to a possible cure for Type 1 diabetes. Article
