NYSCF – Robertson Investigator Studies Pancreatic Development Using Stem Cells

NYSCF – Robertson Stem Cell Investigator Dr. Shuibing Chen, of Weill Cornell Medical College, and her team studied the development of human pancreatic cells using stem cells. Although endothelial cells, a cell type during early development, have been shown to affect mouse pancreatic development, their function in human development remains unclear.

Dr. Chen and her team published in Stem Cell Reports describing their work identifying a molecular signal that mediates cross talk between different types of cells and creating a paradigm to study different stages of organ development using human stem cells.
