Method to generate functionally mature, stem-cell derived, beta cells
Millman, Jeffrey ; Velazco-Cruz, Leonardo

— Technology Description Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis have developed an improved method to differentiate stem-cells into functionally mature, insulin-secreting beta cells (SC-beta cells). Pancreatic beta cells play an important role in controlling blood glucose levels as they se…

Generating pancreatic beta cells from pluripotent stem cells for diabetes cell therapy or drug development
Hogrebe, Nathaniel ; Millman, Jeffrey ; Velazco-Cruz, Leonardo ; Veronese Paniagua, Daniel ; Wernes, Kristina

— Technology Description: Researchers in Prof. Jeffrey Millman’s laboratory have developed multiple techniques for enhancing the differentiation, maturation and function of glucose-responsive, insulin-producing SC-beta cells (pancreatic beta cells made from human pluripotent stem cells). Downst…
