The Next World War – Defeating Diabetes

Here’s a shocking fact: 346 million people worldwide have diabetes. More than 90 percent of them – including an increasing number of children—have type 2 diabetes, putting them at greater risk for heart disease, stroke, blindness, neuropathy, kidney failure, and death.1 The rising obesity rate – more than doubled since 1980 – is driving much of this global epidemic.

Bioscience researchers around the world are waging war on diabetes, and MPI Research is providing key weaponry: fast, accurate, and innovative preclinical models to help advance the most promising treatments.

MPI Research stands with you on the battlefield against this deadly disease – and like you, we will never surrender.
