Spring newsletter 2018 “Unlocking diabetes”

Posted: 03rd October 2018

The Spring 2018 edition of our newsletter - Unlocking Diabetes - is packed with great articles on our scientists, our research, awards, funding and our fantastic SVI and type 1 diabetes supporter community. As always, we lead off with a message from our Director, Professor Tom Kay. Here's an excerpt ...
"This issue has several stories focusing on #diabetes, both type 1 and type 2. SVI arguably has the largest group of type 1 diabetes researchers in Australia and a very significant group doing research on type 2 diabetes. The work occurring in the labs at SVI is based on our strong belief that improved treatment and new preventative strategies will only follow a greater understanding of disease processes. Mechanisms under investigation include interaction between the cells that produce insulin and the immune system, and understanding how different cells in the body and the molecular pathways within them work together to control blood glucose – when these pathways are faulty, diabetes can develop."
