Keywords: Diabetes, Obesity, Nutritional and hormonal regulation of beta-cell mass and function.
Our research efforts are aimed at identifying novel molecular mechanisms that govern beta-cell differentiation, proliferation, and survival. The overall goal is to harness the therapeutic potential of these newly discovered targets to stimulate the generation of new beta-cells and to expand and protect the functional beta-cells that still reside in the pancreas of patients with diabetes.
