Congratulations to Jon Odorico, MD, on his new NIH R21, an exploratory/developmental research grant that supports a researcher during the early and conceptual stages of project development. Through his proposal “Transformational platform for regenerating autologous transplantable endocrine tissue from human pancreatic matrix and pluripotent stem cells,” Dr. Odorico will work toward producing tissue capable of insulin secretion after transplantation. The ultimate goal of Dr. Odorico’s work is to develop a cure for diabetes. This two-year grant carries $275,000 in funding.
