Basic info on what the FDA is doing in this area can be found here. Specific news about advancements is here and it seems the bulk of the work is being done at the University of Virginia and the University of California at Santa Barbara.

A great place to see some of the clinical trials going on that pertain to Type I Diabetes is found on a web site called Center Watch.

Also see the NIDDK web site and the US government's "Clinical Trials" web site.
