Our lab studies the organogenesis and functional maturation of the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas. We use developmental biology techniques, mouse genetics, functional genomics and bioinformatics to discover how these mini-organs gain their final shape and function during development, and how they lose it in diabetes.
