The Human Islet Research Network (HIRN) is a large consortia with many research projects focused on understanding how beta cells are lost in type 1 diabetics (T1D) with a goal of finding how to protect against or replace the loss of functional beta cells. The consortia has multiple branches of research, including understanding beta cell death and survival, regenerating loss beta cell with stem cells, modeling beta cell functions in mice and humans, and more. HIRN also hosts a wide range of datasets, including genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, 3D chromatography, and more, making it a valuable resource for researchers in this field. The existing datasets available are available through the HIRN resource browser (https://resourcebrowser.hirnetwork.org/) and more information on the full consortia is available at https://hirnetwork.org/.
Data made available is a part of the project to provide AI/ML Ready Datasets for Type 1 Diabetes.
