Lectures and seminars ”Stem-cell-a-thon” seminar #1
Speaker: Timo Otonkoski, University of Helsinki
Timo Otonkoski's specialization: His research has focus on the growth and development of the pancreatic islets. He has also made important contributions in the field of congenital hyperinsulinism and neonatal diabetes. Lately, he has shifted his main area of interest into the use of human pluripotent stem cells and genome editing to study beta-cell pathophysiology. His group has made fundamental discoveries of the pluripotent reprogramming of human cells, developed novel approaches for controlling their differentiation, and used this approach to elucidate several monogenic mechanisms of beta-cell dysfunction.
