Joint ROTRF/JDRF Initiative

Deadline: 01/04/2006

The Roche Organ Transplantation Research Foundation and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International are proud to announce a New Joint ROTRF/JDRF Initiative to support projects in immunology and biology research relevant to pancreatic islet transplantation, and transplantation solutions for human type 1 diabetes. Investigators working in the fields of immunology and cell biology, gene therapy, cellular engineering, stem cell research (e.g. generation of islet/beta cell source from stem cells or other cell sources, novel interventions leading to immune tolerance) and other approaches that are relevant to both type 1 diabetes and transplantation, are strongly encouraged to apply.
