• Description:

    The Lanner lab uses embryonic stem cells to both model early human embryo development and develop cell therapies. We have developed a protocol to produce retinal cells for the treatment of blindness that we hope to test clinically in the near future. The lab has also made great strides in producing highly functional insulin-producing cells for future treatment of diabetes. In this project, the student will further develop and GMP adapt this protocol, and finally evaluate the cells in animal models.

    The student will be part of the National ATMP school with 6 other students at different universities in Sweden. In this project, the student will further develop, upscale and GMP adapt our current pancreatic islet differentiation protocol. The cells will then be tested in terms of safety and functionality in vitro and in animal models. The student will further evaluate new transplantation strategies.
