Researchers Demonstrate Use of Stem Cells to Analyze Causes, Treatment of Diabetes

June 17, 2013 — Science Daily - A team from the New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) Research Institute and the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center of Columbia University has generated patient-specific beta cells, or insulin-producing cells, that accurately reflect the features of maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY). The researchers used skin cells of MODY patients
