New publication exploring the impact of oxygen generating material on islet survival and function!

Maria Coronel, along with Ryan Geusz (undergraduate student), recently published their findings on the impact of our patented oxygen generating biomaterial, OxySite, on mitigating stress and damage in pancreatic islets under low oxygen tension (hypoxia). This manuscript, published in the journal Biomaterials, provides guidance as to the detrimental impact of […]
