Posted by on January 29th, 2018

DanStem seeks two laboratory technicians or biomedical laboratory scientists for tasks related to a research project in stem cells and type 1-diabetes. About DanStem  The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Stem Cell Biology – DanStem was established as a result of a series of international recruitments coupled with internationally recognized research groups focused on insulin[…]

Postdoc position in stem cell biology in the Jensen Group at The University of Copenhagen

Posted by on December 27th, 2017

The Jensen group (affiliated to DanStem) is looking to recruit a highly motivated and talented postdoctoral researcher to our highly dynamic research group. Our research/The group We wish to understand how the intestinal epithelium forms and how adult stem cells in the forming organ are specified during development. The intestinal epithelium is associated with numerous[…]

Stem Cells Pave the Way for new treatment of diabetes

Posted by on November 7th, 2017

A new stem cell study conducted at the University of Copenhagen shows how we may increase the vital production of insulin in patients suffering from diabetes. The discovery helps to more efficiently at less cost make insulin-producing beta cells from human stem cells. Therefore, the research paves the way for more effective treatment of diabetes.[…]

Regulation of cell polarity by EGF signaling controls both organ architecture and cell fate

Posted by on October 23rd, 2017

Scientists at DanStem discovered that cells’ sense of direction (cell polarity) determines their destiny. By discovering the signals that control cell polarity in the developing organism, scientists can now mimic it in a test tube and control the fate of human stem cells. The results accelerate the efforts to generate specialized cells, e.g. insulin-producing beta[…]
