Jacqueline Ameri

Assistant professor

Currently working as Assistant Professor and Project Manager for our cell therapy program in diabetes in the Section for Strategic Translational Stem Cell Research and Therapy (TransStem), in the Semb laboratory.

The aim of our work is to produce GMP certified stem cell derived beta cells to initiate a phase 1 trial aiming to assess the safety of hPSC-derived beta cells. More specifically, this work entails GMP adaptation of our current differentiation protocol, screening of GMP cell lines, and the development of new strategies for expansion of pancreatic progenitors and their conversion into glucose-responsive beta cells.

Throughout my PhD training, postdoctoral research and my current work I have been focused on establishing strategies for differentiating hPSCs towards endoderm and pancreatic lineages, specifically beta cells.
