The first NEXT meeting will take place in Brighton (UK) on October 27-28
The NEXT project officially starts today to develop the next generation of chimeric pancreatic islet to tackle diabetes. NEXT provides a 360° solution to the pitfalls of current methodology for pancreatic islet transplantation:
i) Nano technologies, to engineer donor cell surfaces in order to derange recognition and suppress their rejection;
ii) Advanced tissue engineering methods, to assemble bio synthetic islet, enriched by chimeric microvasculature;
iii) Innovative double immune-suppressive strategy using immunosuppressive nano peptides
