My research interests include the development of strategies to improve clinical islet transplantation, as a means to enable the more widespread application of this treatment to the greatest possible number of patients with type 1 diabetes. Much of my research has focused on the use of mesenchymal stem cells to improve transplantation outcome and my ongoing work is focused on identifying the mechanisms through which mesenchymal stem cells help to improve islet function and survival both in vitro and in vivo.
