    $5 Million Boost For Type 1 Diabetes Research At UC San Diego
    http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/202731.php
    $5 million to lead an interdisciplinary team in cell therapy research for type 1 with the aim of generating replacement insulin-producing beta cells from patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cells. Specifically, she and her team want to be able to instruct patient-derived pluripotent stem cells to become beta cells.
    "A goal is to make replacement beta cells from the patient's own tissue" Sander said. "It's about finding a cure - fast."

    Sounds promising and let's hope some good comes from this funding! :)
