Since I have been diagnosed with diabetes about five years ago, I have remained unconvinced that there will be a cure in my lifetime. However, it's articles like A Stem-Cell Discovery Could Help Diabetics by Alice Park, on TIME.com that remind me how hard scientists are working to find a cure. It's pretty interesting and really shows that we are taking steps in the right direction.
The article stated that Scientists at the Harvard Stem Cell Institute reported the first success in generating new insulin-producing cells by using type 1 diabetics’ skin cells. That is pretty awesome!
