Posted by on February 8th, 2011

Here are the highlights from the current issue of Development: From pluripotent to pancreatic fates A reliable method for generating insulin-producing β-cells from human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) would provide new therapeutic options for people with diabetes. So far, no-one has developed such a method but, on p. 861, Gordon Keller and colleagues provide new […]
