Description:


    This accurate scientific visualization illustrates the role of insulin inside the body and how its production is destroyed in type 1 diabetes.

    Approximately 25 million people worldwide, many of them children, suffer from type 1 diabetes. There is currently no cure for diabetes, and those affected with this disease must endure daily insulin injections for the duration of their lives. The visualization illustrates how insulin is normally produced in the body and how its production is destroyed in this disease. The animation is designed to be a pro bono and widely disseminated educational resource.
