The Diabetes Research Institute (DRI) is composed of 8 units of basic research and 5 groups of clinical research. The DRI is an international center of excellence of prevention and treatment of diabetes. It is part of the International DRI federation (DRI-NET), which includes 12 other DRI’s around the world.
The most recent and innovative program include the development of modern technologies (eg. Insulin pumps and artificial pancreas), the study and prevention of diabetes complications and programs of cardio-diabetes and cardio-metabolism in type 2 diabetes.
A breakthrough research is focused on the prevention and cure of Diabetes Type 1 (T1D). To achieve this objective, two specific programs are pursued, both of which take advantage of patients and animal models:
Prediction and prevention of T1D: aims at defining pathogenetic mechanisms of induction and perpetuation of autoimmunity and developing strategies for halting/reverting the progression to T1D.
Beta cell replacement and cell therapy in T1D: aims at developing novel immune tolerance-inducing, immunosuppression-lightening and islet-regeneration therapies to prolong the survival of native and/or transplanted beta cells.
