Abstract:  A failure of beta cells to secrete sufficient levels of insulin underlies all forms of diabetes. Our lab is focused on understanding the contributions of  non-endocrine islet cells to the regulation of insulin release in health and disease. Here, I will highlight some recent work by us and others which highlight the importance of the exocrine pancreas in determining islet function/dysfunction and propose mechanisms by which this may occur.
