PhD position: Immune-islet crosstalk in β-cell regeneration

Posted by , on 30 January 2023

We have shown that zebrafish have the outstanding ability to regenerate β-cells and reverse the course of diabetes.  The secrets of this regenerative ability remain to be elucidated.  Our central hypothesis is that the crosstalk between immune cell subtypes and the islet is critical for the regeneration of β cells and those differences in immune […]

Islet regeneration and coordination via Ca2+ waves – across species (Dresden)

Posted by , on 12 October 2022

Research focus: To develop a therapy for Type 1 diabetes, we aim to understand the molecular and cellular events required for the regeneration of insulin-producing β-cells.  We focus on the signals that promote the formation of functional β-cells in the body via processes of cell-fate conversion, stem-cell plasticity and integration of the cells into functional […]
