Lab Interests:

We are a group of motivated scientists, whose goal is to understand how adaptor/scaffold proteins belonging to the 14-3-3 protein family control metabolic processes and whether they contribute to the development of chronic diseases, such as diabetes and obesity. One of our current projects is to explore what 14-3-3zeta specifically does in pancreatic beta-cells. We are examining how it influences beta-cell survival and function and testing whether we can promote beta-cell expansion by targeting 14-3-3zeta.
