WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF THE BETA CELL NEOGENESIS RESEARCH GROUP (BENE)
The BENE lab aims to regenerate beta cells for cell therapy in diabetes.
Our understanding of the regenerative capacity of beta cells and the mechanisms for generating more beta cells is limited. Where do new beta cells come from in adult organisms? Do they proliferate from existing beta cells, differentiate from progenitor cells, or transdifferentiate from non-beta cells into beta(-like) cells?

The BENE research unit is commited to advancing diabetes care.
