Brief description People with type 1 diabetes require regular insulin injections because the organ that normally makes insulin, the pancreas, no longer functions. The goal of this program is to derive human fetal pancreas tissues from embryonic stem cells. Such tissue could be used to replace the missing insulin producing cells in people with type 1 diabetes. The program brings together expertise in ES cell biology at Monash University and the leading diabetes research at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute.
