Linking functional and molecular profiling in human islet cells

CRC-seminars
Patrick MacDonald completed his PhD in Toronto (2003) and followed this with postdoctoral positions in Lund (2003-05) and Oxford (2005-06). He then established his independent research in Edmonton, Canada, where his team focuses on understanding the cell physiology of pancreatic endocrine function. As part of this, Prof. MacDonald built a research-only human islet isolation program that currently supplies research tissue to >100 groups worldwide. Current research focus seeks to understand mechanisms controlling insulin and glucagon secretory dysfunction in diabetes, islet cell compensation to metabolic demand, and the establishment of approaches to combine single-cell molecular profiling with functional analyses of human islet cells.
