Currently working as an Assistant Professor (Adjunct) in the Translational Stem Cell group at DanStem


Current research

I am interested in translating our basic knowledge of how beta cells form and develop in the pancreas, to a cell-based therapeutic approach to treat type I diabetes. To do this I use human pluripotent stem cells and try to push them to generate functional beta cells in the lab. I am currently working on finding conditions to purify and mass produce these cells.
