Dr. Francis Lynn study published

Dr. Francis Lynn (General Surgery) and his PhD student Nicole Krentz have published their studies showing how the NEUROG3 transcription factor regulates pancreatic islet beta cell differentiation in the journal Developmental Cell.  These studies provide insight into how stem cells can be stimulated to generate beta cells for treatment of diabetes.  Developmental Cell is a high impact journal which is the  NEJM equivalent in developmental biology.
