Researchers use math in search for diabetes cure
New research by mathematics Professor Richard Bertram has successfully reactivated oscillations in insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells -- one of the first necessary steps to resurrecting the dormant cells and restoring the production of insulin.

That's the problem for people living with diabetes: Their pancreatic cells either don't make any insulin, or they don't make enough to control blood sugar, causing dangerous hyperglycemia -- high blood glucose. About 30 million Americans live with diabetes; 95 percent have Type 2 diabetes....
