Millman shares how bioinformatics can be used to improve diabetes cell therapy 

On March 5, Jeffrey Millman, PhD was featured on The Sugar Science’s Ask the Expert webinar series, hosted on YouTube.  The episode was titled “Unraveling Cellular Complexity in Stem Cell-Derived Islet Identity through Single-Cell Sequencing.” 

In the webinar, Dr. Millman gave an overview of using stem cell-derived islets in diabetes cellular therapy, and a comparative and integrative single cell analysis revealing new insights into transcriptional immaturity of stem cell-derived β cells. Additionally, he discusses how single-nucleus multi-omics of human stem cell-derived islets identify deficiencies in lineage specification.   

The Sugar Science is an interactive digital platform with the goal of “expediting a cure for type 1 diabetes by promoting collaboration across diverse research disciplines.”
