Stem cell plasticity and regenerative medicine for diabetes

 

Speaker biography

Rocio Sancho obtained her PhD in immunology at the University of Cordoba (Spain). She completed her postdoctoral research in the Mammalian Genetics lab at the Cancer Research UK London Research Institute where she specialised in studying intestinal tissue stem cells and their function in homeostasis and cancer. As a Senior Scientist in the Adult Stem Cell lab at the Francis Crick Institute she turned her interests in mammalian cell differentiation to the study of cell fate decisions in adult pancreatic progenitors and began to explore their potential to treat diabetes. Since April 2017, Rocio has been a Group Leader in the Centre for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine at King's College London.  The main goal of Rocio's lab is to decipher the fundamental regulatory networks involved in pancreatic cell fate decisions and to apply this knowledge to new strategies in regenerative medicine for diabetes.
