Published: Sep 2nd, 2015

Dr. Campbell-Thompson’s newly released publication showcases evidence that type 1 diabetes is a combined endocrine-exocrine disease in which the loss of functional beta cell mass is clinically apparent.

Organ donor specimens: What can they tell us about type 1 diabetes?

Published: Aug 18th, 2015

A new University of Florida pilot study is helping researchers better understand the trajectory of Type 1 diabetes and may one day help lead to interventions to prevent the disease.

Research Spotlight: Martha Campbell Thompson, PhD

Published: Jan 8th, 2013

A new discovery may provide a clue to why people develop Type 1 diabetes. The study, led by UF researcher Dr. Martha Campbell-Thompson, links pancreas size to diabetes risk. Researchers measured the weight of organ donors’ pancreases and found that people diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes or who were at risk for the disease had smaller-sized pancreases.
