Successful applicants will join the Consortium on Beta cell Death and Survival (CBDS), whose mission is to identify the mechanisms of beta cell stress and destruction central to the development of Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) in humans, with the long-term goal of protecting the residual beta cell mass in T1D patients as early as possible in the disease process, and preventing the progression towards autoimmunity. CBDS is part of the Human Islet Research Network (HIRN).
