Motivation

The 2006 DPLU/LUDC Nordic Prize for an Outstanding Young Diabetes Investigator is awarded to Pål Njølstad for his innovative and fundamental studies of the molecular genetics of monogenic diabetes and pancreas development. Of particular importance is his translational research of elastase deficiency and the discovery of mutations in the carboxyl-ester lipase (CEL) gene VNTR, which has resulted in original insights into the interaction between exocrine and endocrine cells. Novel pathways of the diabetes phenotype have been defined to provide a better understanding of genetic and developmental heterogeneity of hyperglycemia.
