Motivation

Helena Edlund is honored for her research to uncover the mechanisms by which the mixed exocrine and endocrine gland develop and differentiate. Her studies have been crucial to our knowledge of the basic mechanisms that underlie the formation of the pancreas and the homeostasis of this organ. The novel understanding of the development of the pancreas and of the islets and how these two tissures talk to each other has resulted in new approaches to uncover the mechanism that cause diabetes.
