Maintaining Islet Cell Function

Professor Shanta Persaud will be coming along to the group to tell us about her research project entitled 'Maintaining Islet Cell Function'.  Professor Persaud will be investigating the role of a protein found on beta cells in improving the effectiveness of islet transplants and increasing beta cell numbers.  This should lead to new and improved treatments for both type one and type two diabetes. 

The group has recently donated £5,000 to this project.  Please come along to the meeting - we do not charge an entrance fee, nor do we ask you to commit to the event beforehand.
