"This center will provide opportunities to accelerate our researchers' best ideas and make real progress in bringing treatment advances to people with type 1 diabetes," said Matthias von Herrath, MD, a world-renowned researcher in auto-immune diseases and head of the new Novo Nordisk diabetes research center. "We are driven by the company's mandate to find a cure for type 1 diabetes – something that is unique for the pharmaceutical industry today."
The new center, which will be fully operational this summer, is located on the same premises as the Novo Nordisk Inflammation Research Center in order to foster natural research synergies between the two sites.
