Since BENE was founded in 2005, our main aim is to (re)generate functional beta cells, which until now remains a preclinical and experimental approach to diabetes therapy.
Our understanding of the regenerative capacity of beta cells is limited and our understanding on mechanisms to generate more beta cells is even more limited.
Where do new beta cells come from in adult organisms? Proliferation of pre-existing beta cells? Differentiation from progenitor cells? Transdifferentiation of non-beta cells to beta(-like) cells?
