New Journal Publication by the Lynn Lab



Dr. Francis Lynn
 and PhD student Nicole Krentz have published their studies in the journal, Developmental Cell. Their research shows how the NEUROG3 transcription factor regulates pancreatic islet beta cell differentiation.

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 for developmental biology.
