bodys ability to produce insulin on its own, reducing the need for insulin injections and lowering the risk for diabetes-related complications including heart disease, kidney disease and blindness.

Guest speakers Alex Rabinovitch, M.D., with the University of Alberta, Edmonton will touch on the biology of beta cell regeneration, and Aleksandra Pastrak, M.D., Ph.D., vice president of research at the Toronto-based Transition Therapeutics, Inc. will discuss the status of current beta cell regeneration clinical trials.

The Global Diabetes Research Forum is part of JDRFs "Unite to Cure" program, a national campaign to raise awareness of the importance of diabetes research, highlight JDRFs global leadership, and raise funds for the fight to find a cure for diabetes and its complications. The GDRF brings together representatives from each of these sectors, who are acknowledged leaders in the movement to create new-paradigm research management strategies. Guest speakers present their views on how to accelerate research to achieve cures and improve global health, and JDRF leadership will address ways to integrate these shared visions.
