The Center maintains a multidisciplinary and highly collaborative environment that brings together expertise from the UCSF Departments of Medicine, Surgery, Pediatrics, Microbiology & Immunology and others. The Diabetes Center encompasses both the Islet Transplant Center and the Immune Tolerance Network. The UCSF Islet Transplant Center is a traditional clinical research facility dedicated to the advancement of treating diabetes through islet transplantation. The Immune Tolerance Network (ITN) is a National Institutes of Health–funded initiative to facilitate the advancement of immune tolerance–inducing procedures in human clinical practice, towards the development of new and improved treatment and monitoring protocols in kidney and islet transplantation, autoimmune disease, and asthma & allergic diseases. With approximately $20 million dollars in funding per year, the Network is responsible for all aspects of the implementation of the mechanistic, laboratory–based studies and the clinical trials.
