  • The goal of my group is to discover anything that might contribute, directly
    or indirectly, to the prevention and cure of diabetes and its complications.
    We are studying the molecular mechanisms of signal transduction in the islet
    cells, with a focus on calcium signaling and ion channels, in the context of
    the pathogenesis, prevention and treatment of diabetes. Our research is at
    cell and molecular level and the relevance of results obtained from such
    research is not immediately obvious. A look at our publications may give an
    idea about what we are interested in and what we have been doing during the
    past years:
