Odorico Lab receives two new grants

The Odorico Lab, led by Jon Odorico, MD, recently received two new grants.

The UW Office of Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education is supporting “Probing the human pancreas and islet matrisome for matrixstem cell-derived islet interactions,” with a one-year grant of $41,878, and the Department of Defense is supporting “Engineering an Invisibility Cloak for Stem Cell Beta Cells for Treating Diabetes,” with a grant of $250,000, recurring for three years.

Sara Dutton Sackett, PhD, the principal scientist in the Odorico lab, plays a key role in obtaining funding for and in performing this project along with other collaborating scientists from UW and Memorial Sloan Kettering. Congratulations to the Odorico lab!
