UC San Diego School of Medicine researchers will receive $6.4 million in National Institutes of Health grant funding to study how external signals and genetic variations influence the behavior of one cell type in particular: insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas.
People who get migraines are less likely to develop type 2 diabetes. Today, scientists report the latest findings about the relationship between insulin production and the peptides that cause migraine pain. They will present their results at ACS Fall 2021.
Blocking nerve signals to the pancreas could stop patients from ever developing type 1 diabetes.
The insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas unwittingly produce a signal that may aid their own demise in Type 1 diabetes, according to a study of the lipid signals that drive macrophage cells in the body to two different phenotypes of activated immune cells.
