'El Balcó', a programme on Cadena SER radio, interviews Manuel Serrano, group leader of the Cellular Plasticity and Disease laboratory at IRB Barcelona. During the interview, the ICREA researcher explains what his goals are in regenerative medicine.

"Regenerative medicine seeks to generate new cells. For example, in diabetes, the pancreas lacks cells that produce insulin. What we are trying to do is to generate cellular plasticity in the cells of the pancreas so that they are able to generate cells that produce insulin," explains Manuel Serrano.
