Graduate Student, Dean Laboratory, Molecular Physiology and Biophysics

I work in Dr. Danielle Dean’s lab where our research focuses on the liver-pancreatic islet alpha cell axis, a feedback loop involving both glucagon and amino acids that may be disrupted in obesity and diabetes. I am interested in how arginine regulates islet cell proliferation and hormone secretion especially glucagon secretion from alpha cells, a potential target for new diabetes treatments. My other interests include touring art museums, exploring botanical gardens, and spending time with family.
