Dr. Noel Carrascal is running to raise funds to make insulin less expensive and more accessible to everyone in the world. Currently, in some countries, 50% of children with type 1 diabetes die within one year of diagnosis. With access to insulin, people with diabetes can live normal and happy lives. The Open Insulin project at Counter Culture labs aims to create a generic version of insulin that will be open-source and available to all who need it.
One of the key scientists on this effort, Dr. Noel Carrascal, is running to support the volunteer-run community lab where the Open Insulin project is based. Counter Culture Labs, a 501(c)3 non-profit, is an educational space that allows anyone to engage with science and scientific research. We sponsor volunteer based open-science that benefit the community and humanity at large. Please support our fundraiser so that we can continue our research and help to reduce the financial burden of diabetes.
