12/01/202412:00MARIE CURIEPRBB-CRG SessionsMaike SanderPediatric Diabetes Research Center and Center on Diabetes, Institute of Engineering in Medicine at UC San Diego"Insights into diabetes from stem cell islet organoids and single-cell genomics"Host: Jorge FerrerAbstract:Human pluripotent stem cell (hPSC)-derived islet cells provide a promising resource for diabetes research and cell therapies due to their unlimited supply. Recent studies have demonstrated feasibility of in vitro generation of glucose-responsive insulin-secreting pseudo-islets from hPSCs (SC-islets). These SC-islets consist of a heterogenous population of cells, including beta-like cells (SC-beta cells)...

How such apparently haphazard linear arrangements can result in specific gene regulation is a major puzzle. To unravel the underlying logic, we have developed a scalable technology to transplant selected DNA elements to hundreds of alternative positions within a ~2 Mb region, and track the functional consequences. We have used this methodology to...
