This article talks about a quest scientists have been looking to do for a while:  they finally - in diabetic mice - have reprogrammed cells to act as pancreatic cells and produce insulin.  I received this article last year from an ex-boyfriend but didn't actually read it until today when I was searching my mail for another diabetes article.  It'll be wonderful if this actually gets off the ground.
