University of Florida Researchers Developing ‘Pancreatic Islet on a Chip’ to Study Type 1 Diabetes

A group of University of Florida researchers will use a new $5 million grant to develop a “pancreatic islet on a chip” — a platform that will allow them to more efficiently and effectively study Type 1 diabetes and potential treatments for the condition.

“The new system will let researchers more effectively study and work on correcting the mechanisms that cause Type 1 diabetes,” said Todd Brusko, Ph.D., a principal investigator and associate professor of pathology in the UF College of Medicine who also is associated with the UF Diabetes Institute.
