Brief description The two main forms of diabetes - types 1 (T1D) and 2 (T2D) - pose a major problem. It is difficult to identify what causes diabetes. Recently, people at risk of T1D were found to have insulin resistance, a condition thought typical only of T2D. Excitingly, we discovered that the best T1D animal model also shows insulin resistance, and we used it to map important genes. We will now identify these genes. This will help us understand the disease process and to develop better treatments for it.
