Dr. Steven Paraskevas and his team perform their first successful clinical islet transplant at McGil

The Clinical Islet Team, led by Dr. Steven Paraskevas - CNTRP Project 1 Researcher, at the McGill University Health Centre has successfully infused their first patient with Type I diabetes with insulin-producing cells, avoiding the need for a potentially risky organ-transplant operation and the lengthy hospital stay associated with it.

The MUHC has developed the ultra-specialized expertise to perform islet transplants and has worked hard over the past several years to become a centre of excellence in islet transplant to serve patients in eastern Quebec and the northeast United States.
