  • human tissue
  • JDRF recognized this reality and took on the vision to create a biobank of human tissue for type 1 diabetes research, despite the notion of the time that it was an impossible feat. JDRF asked Mark Atkinson, PhD, at the University of Florida to drive this initiative. (wikipedia.org)
