Insulin producing cells
Human embryonic stem cells were differentiated into cells of the pancreas (blue). These cells give rise to insulin-producing cells (red). When implanted into mice, the stem cell-derived pancreatic cells effectively replace the insulin lost in type 1 diabetes. ViaCyte has several CIRM grants to develop a stem cell-based therapy for diabetes. (Flickr : CIRM)
