Professor Lian and his team have already exploring making functional beta cells from stem cells. But there are hurdles, and transplanting beta cells does not always work.
One of the key issues is the lack of robust cell culture systems that enable stem cells to be differentiated into beta cells.
Prof Lian has developed a method which he believes may address this problem. He said: "Our new method is an improvement on previous growth-factor dependent methods, which use proteins to stimulate differentia…
