Project 9

Engraftment, function and beta cell regulation in the adrenal transplant model

Engraftment and re-vascularization are key factors in human pancreatic islet transplantation. The microenvironment of the adrenal gland features potentially ideal characteristics as a novel transplant site which will be analyzed in this project using an in vitro model system and small and large animals preclinical transplantation models.
