Associate Professor Luis Arnes from The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Stem Cell Biology, DanStem, explains pancreas homeostasis as a well-orchestrated process. When injured, acinar cells lose their identity, a situation which needs resolving. The tissue becomes vulnerable to somatic mutation and can develop tumor. Watch the video to learn what scientists explore in order to solve the problem.
