Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that manifests as impaired insulin secretion, with compounding complications over time. Bhatt et al. (2015) investigate protective mechanisms in survivors of type 1 diabetes by using induced pluripotent stem cells as genetic models, uncovering novel interactions between microRNA and the DNA damage checkpoint pathway.
