Peds Endo Basic Science Research Club


Peds Endo Research Club  Season 3

Novel approaches for pancreatic regeneration & islet transplantation

Join us on the 9th March 2021 to hear Dr Avnesh Thakor ( ), who is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Radiology in the Department of Pediatrics here at Stanford.  Avnesh will be presenting on work from his lab which uses state of the art approaches investigating the use of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) based therapies (which includes both the parent cell and their extra-cellular vesicles (EVs)), for multiple disease states (including type 1 diabetes) given their anti-inflammatory, pro-angiogenic and immunomodulatory properties. 

Hope you can join!
