Clinical Islet Provision
At the DRWF Human Islet Isolation Centre in Oxford, we operate as part of the nationwide islet transplant programme. We are one of only three centres within the UK licenced to isolate human islets for allogenic clinical transplantation. Together with Kings College in London and the Scottish Islet Transplant Unit in Edinburgh, we produce human islets for transplantation into recipients throughout the UK. From the isolation centres, islets are shipped to a total of six possible islet transplant centres (Oxford, Kings, Edinburgh, Bristol, Manchester, Newcastle and the Royal Free).
