Jason Doppenberg, MSc

After obtaining my master’s degree in Technical Medicine (track: Reconstructive Medicine) from the University of Twente in the Netherlands, I started as a PhD student in the Islet Group in 2012. As part of the DCTI consortium (Diabetes Cell Therapy Initiative) I was presented with the challenge of improving the process of isolating human pancreatic islets for use in transplantation. This research, with Dr. Marten Engelse as supervisor, has led to the creation of an islet donor risk score index, new insights in DCD pancreas donation, and a new method for isolation called PRISM (PancReatic Islet Separation Method).
