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 mistakenly attacks the beta cells that make insulin. Without these beta cells the body can no longer produce the insulin it needs to survive.
JDRF scientists are developing ground-breaking ways to grow new beta cells from stem cells, the first essential step in curing Type 1.
