Human Pancreas-on-a-Chip Helps Identify Cause of Cystic Fibrosis Complication

This microscopic image shows human pancreatic cells color coded to show the presence of insulin and the gene CFTR (cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator. Researchers report in Nature Communications they used bioengineered human pancreatic tissue on a chip to determine that in addition to causing cystic fibrosis, disruption in CFTR gene expression also may help drive the dangerous complication Cystic Fibrosis-Related Diabetes.
