My studies cover basic and translational research in the field of regenerative
medicine in type 1 diabetes (T1D). I am trying to understand how we can
protect, maintain or regenerate stressed pancreatic β cells using novel
intervention therapies including stem cell therapy and further investigate the
cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in β cell protection and
Adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cell exosomes for ß cell protection and regeneration
In this project I apply a multidisciplinary approach combining studies in cellular and animal models to investigate if ‘’cell-free’’ purified adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cell exosomes can protect and regenerate ß cell.
