Project: Development of an optimised pancreatic cell tool kit to enable accelerated diabetes drug discovery

Acronym PAN-KIT (Reference Number: 12988)
Duration 01/04/2019 - 02/10/2021
Project Topic We will develop pancreatic beta cell models for type 2 diabetes research from human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs), improving their maturity and function. Complementary CRISPR gene-edited disease models will also be generated. 3D cell culture systems will then be developed using automation compatible 96- or 384-multiwell plate formats for high throughput screening and downstream drug evaluation. Market readiness of this platform will be evaluated by an industry beta testers.
