The pancreas is essential for blood glucose regulation and food digestion.

Our lab studies how the function of insulin-producing beta-cells is maintained in health, and why it is lost in diabetes.

We further study how the different pancreatic cell types develop in the embryo.

In order to better understand these processes, we focus on the role of pericytes, a central component of the pancreas microenvironment.
