Spring Point Project works in partnership with the Diabetes Institute for Immunology and Transplantation of the University of Minnesota on the mission to expedite the affordable and widespread availability of islet tissue to diabetes patients. In this partnership, the two organizations provide the science and the source needed to move toward a cure for diabetes. The Diabetes Institute conducts the preclinical and clinical trials, and Spring Point Project builds and operates the biosecure facilities where high-health source pig donors are developed.
The Diabetes Research and Wellness Foundation, a not-for-profit worldwide network based in Washington, D.C., is also part of the partnership with a major $6.2 million grant to Spring Point Project.
