Dr. Raphael Scharfmann’ research group is interested by pancreatic endocrine cell development and particularly by insulin-producing beta cells. The group developed in vitro bioassays using rodent fetal pancreas to screen for signal that regulate pancreatic progenitor cell proliferation and differentiation into beta cells. In parallel, they are developing innovative assays, to transfer to human, data generated in rodent models.
