  1. Identifying the progenitors responsible for Beta Cell regeneration in zebrafish
    Michael Parsons; Fiscal Year: 2009
    ..It is hoped that by understanding how progenitors differentiate into insulin producing cells in our model system will allow the development of better techniques to differentiate beta cells for therapeutic purposes in the future. ..
