I have read many great things about Dr Faustman’s research
“In 2001, her lab reversed type 1 diabetes in mice with end stage disease, a project that is now being translated into human clinical trials.”
I wrote her to see if I could participate in the studies and received an email back within a few days. They are setting up appointments for as far as December to donate blood. They’re asking for T1D as well as a “control” person (someone who will donate blood too who is non-diabetic and does not have any other auto immune diseases).
If you’re going to help in the research (I think it’s a great cause!), they ask that you bring yourself, as well as the “control” person, each time that you come (typically every 3-4 months)
I am going to be doing my first blood donation in December and I’m not entirely sure what the next steps will be. I’m willing to do most anything as Dr Faustman’s research has come very close to finding a cure for T1D!
