Project Description

Using Crispr/Cas9 technology and homologous recombination in hESC to generate a knock-in FLTP hESC lines, FLTP is a maturation marker for b cells. Differentiation of (hPSCs) towards mature and insulin producer stem cell derived-b cells and stem cell derived pancreatic Islets. Understanding the inter-islet cell communication, maturation and trans-differentiation process in the human islet by using the stem cell platform.
