Sernova CEO Philip Toleikis


Big news from Sernova, one of the companies hoping that implantable stem cells will be a functional cure for diabetes. They recently announced that the first person in their trials with type 1 is completely off injected or infused insulin – and is making their own.

Stacey talks to Dr. Philip Toleikis, Sernova’s president and CEO. He explains how their process differs from some of the other companies looking at stem cells, talks about their partnerships and shares more about the patients doing well in this clinical trial.
