Research and Clinical Trials
The Penn Rodebaugh Diabetes Center actively
participates in research and clinical trials
designed for advancing the treatment of diabetes
and ultimately finding its cure.
Our patients can participate in various research
studies conducted directly by our faculty and
scientists within the Division
of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism.
The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania
is one of 10 nationwide centers conducting islet
cell transplantation therapy for type 1 diabetes.
This is an exciting new technology that represents
the first potential cure for type 1 diabetes.
