4th Summit on Stem Cell Derived Beta Cells

Date: 24 – 25 April 2023

Location: Cambridge, MA

Attending: Matthias Austen and Christine Guenther 

Join us in-person in Cambridge for the 4th IPITA/HSCI/JDRF Summit on Stem Cell Derived Beta Cells where Evotec will be sponsoring and presenting it’s science in collaboration with Sernova.

Presentation | April 24 from 2:45 – 4:25om ET
Manufacturing of optimized human islet-like clusters (ILCs) from iPSCs and functional testing of an ILC + Cell Pouch™ combination in vivo

Evotec has developed a scalable and comprehensive process for GMP manufacturing of ILCs from a human GMP-grade induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) line for cell therapy in human insulin-dependent diabetes. In 2022, Evotec entered into a collaboration with Sernova Corp., which has developed the proprietary Cell Pouch System™. Following implantation, the Cell Pouch develops a vascularized environment to support engraftment and long-term function of therapeutic cells. 

Authors: Audrey Holtzinger, Simone Strauch, Thomas Reinbothe, Claudia Wrzos, Andreas Scheel, Cord Dohrmann, Arash Memarnejadian, Pardis Pakshir, Philip M. Toleikis, Matthias Austen

Sernova will disclose additional information about the presentation at the time of the conference.
