  • Berrie Center Scientists Use Patient-Specific Stem Cells to Correct Deficient Beta Cells
    Diabetes Stem Cell Research Update
    Monday, June 17, 2013 - Tuesday, July 2, 2013

     The researchers used skin cells of Berrie Center MODY patients to produce induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, from which they then made beta cells. Transplanted into a mouse, the stem cell-derived beta cells secreted insulin in a manner similar to that of the beta cells of MODY patients. Repair of the gene...
