Jelena M. Janjic, Ph.D., associate professor of pharmaceutics, contributed to a joint project in diabetic neuropathy leading to the publishing of a precedent-setting manuscript in the Journal of Neuroinflammation.

The U.S. Department of Defense funded research marks the first report of live imaging of immune cells interacting with nerves driving the pain using nanoparticles in diabetic neuropathy. According to Janjic, the findings open the doors to further research into mechanisms of the disease, potentially affecting millions of people in the United States.
