Research summary

Experimental diabetes research with a focus on the regulation of pancreatic hormone secretion (insulin, glucagon and somatostatin) in health and disease. We explore this regulation by a combination of biophysical, optical, biochemical and molecular biological techniques. We have traditionally an interest in the role(s) played by ion channels and electrical activity and how these are influenced by nutrients, hormones and pharmacological agents.
