Millman publishes research on insulin-producing SC-islets after transplantation

On March 16, Jeffrey R. Millman, PhD and collaborators had their research titled “Differential Function and Maturation of Human Stem Cell-Derived Islets After Transplantation,” published in issue 3 of “Stem Cells Translational Medicine.”  It is evident that cell replacement therapy is a potential treatment for patients with diabetes. One possible renewable source of replacement cells are stem-cell […]
