Our group studies the fundamental science of islets of Langerhans, from the molecular biology of beta-cells to their effects on whole-body physiology. We research the mechanisms of islet dysfunction during type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes, identify novel therapeutic targets and work to improve islet transplantation therapy for type 1 diabetes.
