Research Impact & Significance – In this project, I am interested in studying the production of nascent (newly created) mRNAs from pancreatic islets in response to environmental cues. The identification of up or down regulated genes will identify strategies for studying the mechanisms of diabetes, and hopefully bring to light paths to therapies.
