Faustman Lab Research Interest

Faustman Lab is seeking patients who:
  • are over 18 years old
  • have had type 1 diabetes for less than 20 years

If you are interested and fit these criteria please call 617-726-4084 or e-mail diabetestrial@partners.org for more information about current trial recruitment. For new patients and those that have not donated blood samples to the Faustman lab in over a year, they will schedule you for a 30 minute screening visit to donate a blood sample at our facility in Boston. Data collected may be used for eligibility screening for proposed Phase II studies testing the BCG vaccine as a treatment for type 1 diabetes.

Patients from all over the world are welcome to participate in our research, though future studies may
require frequent visits to the Faustman Lab, in Boston.
Watch the TuDiabetes live interview with Dr. Faustman about the BCG vaccine.
