Diabetes Research Institute Invention Promotes Growth of Stem Cells into Insulin-Producing Cells
Date:9/5/2007

ulture device, designed by Chris Fraker, senior research associate in the Tissue Engineering Laboratory at the Diabetes Research Institute, closely mimics the natural oxygen environment. The device "sandwiches" the stem cells with oxygen from two sources, one from the top with air diffusing through the culture medium and the second from the bottom with air diffusing through a silicon membrane mixed with perfluorocarbon, a very powerful oxygen reservoir.

"The use of high oxygen to promote differentiation of insulin-producing cells opens the way to many other applications with different sources of progenitor cells, beyond embryonic stem cells and beyond diabetes," said Camillo Ricordi, M.D., scientific director of the Diabetes Research Institute.

About the Diabetes Research Institute

The Diabetes Research Institute is a recognized world leader in cure- focused research. Since its inception in the early 1970s, the DRI has made significant contributions to the field of diabetes research, pioneering many of the techniques used in islet transplantation. From innovations in islet isolation and transplant procedures to advances in cell biology and immunology, the DRI is now harnessing the power of emerging technologies to develop new cell-based therapies to restore insulin production. For the millions of families already affected by diabetes who are looking to the world of science for answers, the Diabetes Research Institute is the best hope for a cure.
