The Platform

Current Research tools used for Adipose tissue analysis have limitations.  MelliCell's groundbreaking technology give us the unique ability to develop adipose tissues thousands of times larger than conventional methods which allows more accurate mimicry of the size and behaviors of adipocytes in obese adults. The MelliCell platform enables discovery of therapeutic targets and leads, while reducing the time and money required for efficacy screening.

Diabetes Myths, Facts & Figures

Myth: Diabetes is a bigger problem in North America and Europe than the rest of the world.

Fact: more than 10% of people in the US have diabetes. That's shockingly high, but it ranks 59th worldwide behind Pacific Islands (e.g. 30% in the Marshall Islands), African (e.g. 22% in Sudan), Asian (e.g. 19% in Pakistan), and Latin American (e.g. 17% in Belize) countries. Diabetes is a global issue.

Myth: We get type 2 diabetes because we eat too much.

Fact: We really don't know what causes diabetes and studies implicate everything from gut bacteria to microplastics to working the night shift. While being overweight is a strong risk factor for type 2 diabetes, genetics, family history, and other environmental factors are too.

Myth: Diabetes is easily reversed with diet and exercise.

Fact: While weight loss is beneficial to those of us who are overweight, eating less and exercising are unreliable for diabetes remission. For example, 3.5% of people experienced 4-year remission in this study: 10.1001/jama.2012.67929. We should make healthy choices, but eating less and exercising aren't stopping diabetes.
