     Our group is interested in the cell biology of the insulin-producing β-cells of the pancreatic islets and the molecular fundamentals of diabetes. In my seminar I will review recent findings in two of our major areas of interest. A major topic of research is to unveil the molecular principles that regulate the turnover of insulin secretory granules, including their biogenesis, traffic, exocytosis and intracellular disposal by autophagy. Another major topic is to understand the natural history of beta cell failure in type 2 diabetes through the assembly and investigation of the largest biobank of pancreatic tissue specimens/islets from metabolically phenotyped normoglycemic, prediabetic and diabetic subjects undergoing pancreatic surgery.
