This is truly amazing, and I, for one, hope that further research along these lines proves fruitful: researchers at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute have directly converted (without dedifferentiation) adult pancreatic cells into insulin-producing beta cells in living mice. The potential of this, and not just for diabetes treatment, is amazing.
