As an original member of the Edmonton Protocol team, the Korbutt lab focuses on all aspects of islet transplantation. Areas of interest in our group include the use of stem cells and cell manufacturing. Our current projects include finding ways to use less toxic immunosuppresants and utilising neonatal pig islets as a clinical islet source. The Korbutt group is GMP-certified, allowing our work to be quickly translated from the bench to the clinic.
