About

We are working on the control of insulin secretion. Defects in secretion are known to be key factors in the development of diabetes. Our lab aims to understand the normal regulation of insulin secretion, what goes wrong in disease and to develop new treatments for diabetes. Our lab website is: http://peter-thorn.squarespace.com/
