    About This Project

    Diabetes in childhood is life changing, needing daily insulin injections to get strict blood sugar control & prevent heart disease & early death.

    Specialized "brown fat" cells regulate blood sugars & may hold the key to future treatments. They burn sugar & fat, improving metabolic health & obesity, but no one has found a good way to trigger this in humans.

    Our lab-grown human brown fat cells will behave like those in the body, speeding discovery of possible treatments & human trials for diabetes & obesity.

    Blast off!
