Our web site has information on this company, our research on the cure for diabetes, and the science of our thin-sheet bio-artificial pancreas. We invite you to explore, and suggest you start with one of three overviews.

There are many links within this site that define terms and explain concepts. And there are links to our companion web sites Hanuman Garden and Good Blood Sugar.
