The aim of the 4 years’ project is to grow in the laboratory three-dimensional cellular structures of insulin-producing cells and to set up a mass production process. The group from the Goethe University of Frankfurt is dedicated to controlling the growth of the organoids through light-sheet fluorescence microscope. Two groups of researchers from Cambridge are specialised in isolating insulin-producing cells from donors, while a group of clinicians from Milan has developed methods for organoids’ transplantation.
