The H2020 Biocapan project, coordinated by the CEA, is developing an innovative cell therapy to supplement a poorly functioning pancreas in patients with type 1 diabetes. The two major goals of this therapy - which involves the use of a revolutionary biocapsule - are to prevent transplanted cells from being rejected and to enable them to perform their function. This will enhance patients’ lives, in particular by eliminating the need for immunosuppressive treatments, which often have severe side-effects.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
