The world’s experts in diabetes are right here in Minnesota.
Mayo Clinic has for years been ranked number one in endocrinology and diabetes research by U.S. News and World Report. The University of Minnesota is widely recognized as a world leader in reversing type 1 diabetes through islet cell transplantation.
Minnesota’s strength has been recognized many times by independent review committees, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH), international experts such as the Karolinska Institute of Sweden, and organizations such as the American Diabetes Association.
Between the two Minnesota institutions, notable milestones in diabetes research validate the potential to ultimately cure diabetes. Their work has led to:
- Research that identified the mechanisms behind diabetes
- Discoveries on how to manufacture islets destroyed by the disease
- Recognized best practices for preventing the disease
