Molecular Basis of Glucose Sensing in the Brain and Beta Cells

Our research goal is to answer how do neurons, and beta-cells in the pancreas sense glucose to regulate systemic glucose homeostasis. The knowledge gained from our research may help identify new molecular targets to treat metabolic disorders such as diabetes and obesity.
