A collaboration between the Institute of Diabetes and Regeneration Research at Helmholtz Zentrum München and Lilly is seeking to improve and accelerate diabetes treatment by researching pancreatic beta cell regeneration.
Focusing on the identification, validation and targeting of novel pathways and molecules for triggering beta cell regeneration, the goal is to develop new therapies that preserve and/or restore mass and functionality of people’s remaining beta cells.
Prof. Heiko Lickert, Director of the Institute of Diabetes and Regeneration Research, said: “We are excited to be working with Lilly. This collaboration is a perfect opportunity to combine the strength of our basic and translational research performed at Helmholtz Zentrum München with Lilly’s expertise in drug discovery and development for diabetes therapy.”
