Credentials: My research focus is to characterize the composition of the human pancreatic and islet matrisome, with the goal of using this information to enhance the microenvironment in which stem cell-derived beta cells are differentiated and transplanted. I have produced a human pancreatic hydrogel scaffold to test the hypothesis that pancreas-specific extracellular matrix will enhance the differentiation, function and engraftment of these cells.
