BETA CELL REGENERATION FOR DIABETES THERAPY: RFA-DK-05-007

Statistics from Altmetric.com

Purpose: The purpose of this request for applications (RFA) is to invite and support applications characterizing the regenerative potential of human beta cells, including studies to define signals and cellular targets required to regenerate pancreatic function in the diabetic microenvironment and experiments to identify ways to enhance beta cell regeneration in vivo. It is anticipated that findings will facilitate attempts to slow or reverse tissue damage and/or enhance recovery of beta cell function in diabetic patients.

The overall objective of this RFA is to support studies that will characterize the regenerative potential of human beta cells and/or islets in vivo, define cellular and molecular factors regulating pancreatic regeneration in normal and diabetic adults, and identify mediators and cellular targets …
