We thank Dr. Jocelyn E. Manning Fox and Prof. Patrick E. MacDonald for provision of human islets via the Alberta Diabetes Institute IsletCore at the University of Alberta in Edmonton with the assistance of the Human Organ Procurement and Exchange (HOPE) program, Trillium Gift of Life Network (TGLN) and other Canadian organ procurement organizations. We are grateful to the European Consortium for Islet Transplantation (ECIT), which was supported by JDRF award 31-2008-416 (ECIT Islet for Basic Research program). D.J.H. was supported by a Diabetes UK R.D. Lawrence (12/0004431) Fellowship, a Wellcome Trust Institutional Support Award, and MRC (MR/N00275X/1 and MR/S025618/1) and Diabetes UK (17/0005681) Project Grants. This project has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program (Starting Grant 715884 to D.J.H.). G.A.R. was supported by Wellcome Trust Senior Investigator (WT098424AIA) and Investigator (212625/Z/18/Z) Awards, MRC Programme Grants (MR/R022259/1, MR/ J0003042/1, MR/L020149/1) and Experimental Challenge Grant (DIVA, MR/L02036X/ 1), MRC (MR/N00275X/1), Diabetes UK (BDA/11/0004210, BDA/15/0005275, BDA 16/ 0005485) and Imperial Confidence in Concept (ICiC) Grants. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme via the Innovative Medicines Initiative 2 Joint Undertaking under grant agreement No 115881 (RHAPSODY) to G.A.R. L.P. provided human islets through collaboration with the Diabetes Research Institute, IRCCS San Raffaele Scientific Institute (Milan), within the European Consortium for Islet Transplantation islet distribution program for basic research supported by JDRF (1-RSC-2014-90-I-X). We thank the Microscopy and Imaging Services (MISBU) in the Tech Hub facility at Birmingham University for support and maintenance of microscopes.
