New non-invasive method for studying the development of insulin-producing cells
On the web-site of Karolinska Institutet, there is recent post regarding a new publication: “Researchers at Karolinska Institutet and Nanyang Technological University in Singapore have produced a unique method for monitoring the development of insulin-producing cells, which play a key part in regulating blood glucose concentration. The method, which is described in the journal Diabetologia, might prove to be step on the way to one day manufacturing insulin-producing cells in the laboratory.”
