Hi all. I'm new to this forum and biohacking. The research in the following link has held my interest for a while, and I've posted it here just to get some feedback on what obstacles we may face in transferring to people.
You essentially extract neural stem cells from the olfactory bulb with a scope (which is relatively easy even in people according to the researchers), culture them ex vivo using Wnt3 / Wnt3a ligands and anti-IGFB-4, then transplant them into the pancreas.
Figure 2 in that link is essentially it.
This research first came to my interest because of the minimal genetic manipulation involved.
So why isn't it already being done? Can it be done grinder style?
