I am investigating the role of epigenetics in regulation of β-cell function and development and how epigenetics thereby contribute to type 2 diabetes. The aim is to increase our understanding of β-cell biology and identify potential targets for novel diabetes therapies. In my research I mainly use human pancreatic islets and cultured rat and human β-cell lines.
