Malin Fex, associate professor

I am born and raised in Sweden, and received both my master and PhD at Lund University. The overarching goal of my research is to understand why the pancreatic beta cells fail to produce adequate amounts of insulin to regulate whole body metabolism in type 2 diabetes (T2D). I focus mainly on monoamine signaling within the islet of Langerhans and we have produced a substantial amount of work focusing on the role of serotonin and melatonin in regulation of islet function. Another focus of my research is mechanisms of autophagy, a tightly regulated process involved in cell maintenance and cell survival. Here we focus on the role of autophagy in pancreatic beta cells during metabolic stress and type 2 diabetes.

In my spare, time I like to work in my garden, exercise and spend time with my family.
