Worldwide, about 70,000 children under age 14 are developing type 1 diabetes each year. Sanford Health has dedicated a translational research center focused on targeting diabetes research, cures and care called The Sanford Project. This team uses recent advancements in regenerative and personalized medicine to conduct pre-clinical and clinical studies aimed at stimulating repair mechanisms to reboot insulin-producing beta-cells.
Clinical trials relating to diabetes are available for both children and adults. Participating in a trial may provide you with access to new treatment options while furthering the development of a cure for future generations. The number of people with diabetes is increasing and diabetes continues to be a serious threat to the life and health of many people who don't even know they have diabetes.
