Alberta Islet Distribution Program/University of Alberta
Tatsuya Kin leads the Clinical Islet Laboratory (CIL) at the University of Alberta and Alberta Islet Distribution Program. His team has isolated islets from over 2330 human pancreas. The primary goal of the CIL is clinical transplantation, however if islets are unable to be used for that role, islets may be distributed for research purposes. The Alberta Islet Distribution Program distributes the islets for 45 basic science projects in 7 countries.
