NOD Mouse Model of Type 1 Diabetes

This is a picture of the Type 1 Diabetes Research Group taken in the Fall of 2015.
This slide shows a section of the pancreas from a non-progressor mouse sacrificed after 34 weeks. The red staining is probing for insulin production by beta cells.  The green staining is probing for glucagon production by alpha cells. 
This graph shows how the blood glucose levels changed in a cohort of 12 mice over the course of 35 weeks.  We repeatedly find that mice fall into "early", "late", and "non" progressor categories.
