    Guanlan Xu, Instructor (P) 2014 -

    Loss of functional beta cell mass is a hallmark of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. However, the mechanism that mediates this process has not been elucidated, and corresponding therapies have not been developed. MicroRNAs are ~ 22-nt small RNAs that mediate post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. Dr. Xu found that diabetes induces the beta cell miR-204, which in turn represses insulin transcription by targeting and inhibiting the insulin transcription factor MAFA. His work also showe...

    Ronadip Banerjee, Assistant Professor (P) 2016 -

    The Banerjee laboratory is studying how hormones regulate metabolism, with a particular focus on glucose homeostasis. We use the pancreatic beta-cell as our model system. These amazing cells sense and integrate inputs from numerous hormones and metabolites to regulate secretion of hormones, including insulin, that in turn regulate metabolism in many tissues. Beta-cell failure to produce sufficient insulin underlies the development of diabetes mellitus.

    Our work has demonstrated a cr...
