Discovery enables clear identification of diseased beta cells in type 2 diabetes

October 1, 2019
Studies of diabetes rely on the ability of researchers to sort diseased cells from healthy cells. For years, researchers have noted that typical RNA sequencing analysis of these cells was poorly able to separate type 2 cells from non-diseased control cells. Researchers realized there must be a fundamental difference between diseased and healthy cells that had gone undiscovered. Now, researchers at Joslin have uncovered that difference. Read more
