Grow a Beta Cell
Buy the JDRF Grow a Beta Cell gift for a friend or loved one and help push this important research forwards to bring hope for a cure to everyone with Type 1.
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition where the immune system attacks the beta cells that make insulin. Without these beta cells the body can no longer produce insulin, so a person with type 1 diabetes must take insulin on board through injections or pump infusions.
JDRF funded scientists are working on how to get adult beta cells to grow and multiply.
Through this gift, a donation of £25 has been made which will support JDRF's work to grow new insulin-producing beta cells, along with our other pioneering research projects, to give hope to people with type 1 diabetes.
