To examine ß-cell–vascular endothelial cell interaction, my lab uses a number of cutting-edge techniques: two-photon excitation microscopy, confocal microcopy, microfluidics, and live cell imaging of fluorescent proteins. Current projects use cell culture and ex vivo pancreatic islet models. These studies will advance our understanding of pancreatic islet communication, with a specific focus on the communication between ß-cell and vascular endothelial cells through FGF/FGFR1-signaling.
