Stem cell differentiation for diabetes: Alexander Revzin, Ph.D.

By Jennifer Schutz

Alexander Revzin, Ph.D., is a professor of biomedical engineering at Mayo Clinic and recipient of a 2018 Regenerative Medicine Minnesota Research Award. He is developing microcapsules that could be used as cell carriers during differentiation of stem cells into pancreatic islets. These same capsules may also be useful as vehicles for islet transplantation. This technology will enable better scale-up of islet production from stem cells, may result in cost reduction, and may also alleviate problems associated with immune rejection of transplanted islets.
