BGU researchers are working on ways not only to diagnose and manage diabetes, but also to cure it.
Dr. Eli Lewis, who heads BGU’s Clinical Islet Laboratory, is pursuing three major goals: transplants and new drugs, gene therapy, and the creation of a new “transgenic” mouse that can tolerate human material for inflammation drug experimentation.
Prof. Angel Porgador, a member of BGU’s National Institute for Biotechnology in the Negev, is investigating whether reducing the function of the immune system’s natural killer (NK cells) can delay the development of type 1 diabetes and the need for a large amount of insulin.
