The Gastroenterology/Endocrinology course (END-3400) of the Advanced Stem Cell Education Program is designed to enhance the knowledge of healthcare professionals about intestinal, liver and pancreatic repair, using the current clinical applications of stem cell therapies.

A major challenge in Regenerative Medicine, in particular the field of organ regeneration, is improvement of current therapies coupled with discoveries of new approaches to treat patients suffering from acute and chronic diseases. In developing a potential therapy for patients with diabetes, researchers hope to develop a system that meets several criteria. Stem cells should be able to multiply, self-renew, and differentiate in-vitro and in-vivo to produce the desired cell types specifically glucose-responsive beta cells, expanding the treatment options for patients with aggressive diseases.
