Spring Point Project, a non-profit organization, is working in partnership with the Diabetes Institute for Immunology and Transplantation at the University of Minnesota to develop a cure for type-1 diabetes (http://www.springpointproject.org/science) that will be widely available and affordable.

At its Diabetes Research and Wellness Foundation Islet Resource Facility in western Wisconsin, Spring Point Project is working to realize the potential cure by raising a supply of donor pigs under ultra-clean, or 'biosecure' conditions. Within the next two years, when the cure is slated to enter clinical trials, insulin-producing islet cells from these 'medical-grade' pigs are to be transplanted into human patients with the disease - freeing them from the burdens of daily insulin administration and complications caused by insufficient blood sugar levels.
