We work for a world without type 1 diabetes

  • The Institute of Diabetes Research focuses on gaining knowledge about the development and the potential prevention of type 1 diabetes. Screenings enable early detection and we strive to delay or even prohibit the disease in the future. Our goal is a world without type 1 diabetes! Therefore, we study the molecular mechanisms of the pathogenesis, particularly the interaction of environment, genetics and the immune system. We aim to identify markers for early diagnosis and to develop therapies for the prevention and cure of type 1 diabetes.   More
