  • JAXtaposition | Diabetes

    JAX Assistant Professor Michael Stitzel believes that type 2 diabetes it not just one disease, but is actually a group of different disease sub-types, with each of us at a different level of risk depending on our genetics and environment. His research team is conducting a massive survey of the hormone-producing cells in the pancreas from pre-diabetic, diabetic and normal patients to discover new, precise treatments and preventions for the condition. His cutting-edge research has already been supported by organizations like the American Diabetes Association, National Institutes of Health, and Department of Defense.
