Diabetes: How Stem Cells Offer Hope | Dr. Ashleigh Boyd | TEDxUCLWomen



Every 2 minutes, someone in the United Kingdom is diagnosed with diabetes, and there is an urgent need for new and innovative treatments. In this educational talk, Dr Ashleigh Boyd discusses how research into stem cells can offer hope for new diabetes treatments.

Dr Ashleigh Boyd is a Senior Lecturer at UCL, where she teaches stem cell biology to undergraduates and postgraduates and leads a research group focussed on the applications of stem cell biology to disease and cell therapy. Research in her lab utilises induced pluripotent stem cells which can in principle produce all tissues in the body, and might eventually impact disease treatments by providing a new source of tissue for transplantation.
