“Improving Diabetes Healthcare with Stem Cell Technologies “
Summary: Healthcare costs for treating diabetes are over $42 billion per year, with persistence of long-term complications still a remaining major challenge in patient care. This seminar will discuss how the generation of insulin-producing cells from stem cells for use in drug screening and cell replacement therapy can revolutionize next generation treatment for patients.
