Cherie Stabler awarded $1M grant from the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

Dr. Cherie Stabler, along with her collaborator Dr. Andrés Garcia (Georgia Institute of Technology), were awarded a 3-year grant from the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) on their collaborative project entitled “Engineered Bioactive Hydrogel Macrodevices for Islet Transplantation”.

This grant, which provides over $1 million in funding, uses bioactive biomaterials capable of protecting cells from immune rejection, supplementing oxygenation, and promoting host engraftment to create a long-term cell-based implant for treatment of Type 1 Diabetes.

Congratulations, Dr. Stabler!
