In a study recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine, researchers from PNRI’s Hagopian Lab and TEDDY Study colleagues found no evidence to suggest a link between COVID-19 and the development of type 1 diabetes in children. Their findings stand in contrast to other recent studies that suggested a link between the virus and the disease.
