City of Hope Renames World-Class Research Center the “Arthur Riggs Diabetes & Metabolism Research Institute”

Author: IIDP Admin
City of Hope has renamed its preeminent diabetes research center the Arthur Riggs Diabetes & Metabolism Research Institute in honor of its longtime director and research pioneer Arthur Riggs, Ph.D., the Samuel Rahbar Chair in Diabetes & Drug Discovery. Riggs’ scientific achievements include developing the technology that led to the creation of the first synthetic human insulin — a breakthrough that enabled mass production of insulin for people with diabetes. That discovery, which made possible the launch of a $500 billion global biotech industry, was followed by numerous firsts in the field of biomedical science. Today, synthetic insulin is used by hundreds of millions of people.

The COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus) pandemic and its impact on global health.

Author: IIDP Admin

As you are aware, much uncertainty and concern surrounds the COVID-19 virus (Coronavirus) pandemic and its impact on global health.  The Integrated Islet Distribution Program (IIDP), in its role as a provider of human islets and tissue to investigators worldwide, is taking this threat very seriously.

 

Therefore, out of an abundance of caution, the IIDP is continuing its temporary suspension of islet and tissue distributions until further notice.

 

We will continue to monitor recommendations from the CDC, our Centers, and their OPO partners regarding any changing criteria for organ acceptance. When IIDP islet distributions resume, as always all personnel handling these islets are reminded to follow the Universal Precautions in Handling Human Tissue.
