Bart's-Oxford (BOX) family study

Type 1 diabetes is caused when the immune system makes a mistake and targets the insulin producing beta cells in the pancreas for destruction. The Bart's-Oxford (BOX) Family Study is an observational population-based study following young people with type 1 diabetes and their relatives. We are dedicated to understanding the causes of type 1 diabetes with the ultimate goal of future prevention.
