Millman Lab receives funding to advance diabetes cell replacement therapy  

Earlier this year, Jeffrey Millman, PhD received sub-award funding from JDRF to support his lab’s extensive research in advancing diabetes cell replacement therapy.  The scarcity of pancreas donors has severely limited the supply of insulin-producing islets for clinical transplantation, prompting the exploration of alternative sources.   Dr. Millman has pioneered approaches to generate lab-grown islets from […]

Millman Lab receives level Gold certification for environmental sustainability 

In prioritization of environmental sustainability in their workspace, Millman Lab recently joined the Washington University Green Labs Program, certifying at level Gold! The lab’s sustainability initiatives are led by current lab member and Green Lab Representative, Erika Brown.   Most recently, Millman Lab volunteered at the O’Fallon Park Clean-Up and Family Fun Day, in honor of […]

Millman Lab receives funding to improve engraftment of stem cells through genetic engineering 

In January, Jeffrey Millman, PhD was awarded funding of $450,000 from JDRF for his lab’s project titled “Genetic Engineering to Improve Engraftment of Stem Cell-Derived Islets.”    Transplantation of new insulin-producing cells into the patients could be a functional cure for type 1 diabetes. We have developed a method for creating these cells in the lab […]
