Lectures and seminars Seminar with Professor Douglas Melton
Welcome to an online-seminar with Professor Douglas Melton from Harvard Stem Cell Institute, USA, Tuesday 11 January 2022 at 14:00.
Two decades of research into pluripotent cell based pancreatic islet treatments set to replace 100 years of insulin injections.
In collaboration with ATMP Sweden, Karolinska Institutet welcomes Professor Douglas Melton to present his pioneering research, into the use of pluripotent cell derived pancreatic cells for treatment of Type 1 diabetes, and data from the first human treated showing the treatment is working!
The presentation will be hosted by Professor Kenneth R. Chien and is part of an ATMP Sweden initiative for development of pluripotent stem cell-based medicines.
ATMP Sweden is a national network for activities within medicines based on genes, cells or tissue engineering, classified as Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs) in Europe. Our goal is to promote the collaboration and communication that is needed for accelerated and effective ATMP based patient solutions.
