" Joey Lau Börjesson is awarded the prize in order to provide enhanced understanding of how transplanted insulin-producing cells are transformed by their new environment in different implantation bodies, and how the survival and function of the transplanted cells can be improved, including stem cell modification. The findings can lead to improved results in clinical islets transplantation and provide a basis for how stem cell-derived insulin-producing cells can best be developed as cell therapy. "
