My lab combines in vivo and in vitro assays to define regulatory mechanisms that control membrane trafficking to and from the cell surface via endosomal intermediates. We aim to leverage our expertise in CRISPR-mediated genome editing to create powerful model systems to decipher how various pathological mutations lead to diabetes. Our goal is to leverage CRISPR/Cas9 technology to modify rodent Ins2 with a HaloTag to visualize its native transport through the secretory pathway using light sheet imaging approaches.
