Fund A Cure for local research on a global scale


Dr. Klearchos Papas and Dr. Robert C. Johnson of the University of Arizona in Tucson, are working on groundbreaking T1D cure research in the areas of “High Cell Density, Oxygen Enabled, Beta Cell Encapsulation” and “Accelerated Insulin Absorption Through Miniature Implantable Devices.”

These two world-renowned scientists, in partnership with transplant surgeon Dr. Robert Harland and their respective teams, are committed to this groundbreaking cure research, using transplantation of microencapsulated cells without the need for immunosuppression. Each project focuses on different areas of Breakthrough T1D’s Cure Priority: Regeneration; disease modifying therapies that promote cell survival, and Immunotherapies; treatments that turn off the body’s autoimmune attack.
