Welcome to the Poitout Lab Website

The mission of our laboratory is to understand the pathogenesis of beta-cell failure in type 2 diabetes through complementary approaches from whole animal physiology to cell and molecular biology.

We also thrive to offer an outstanding training environment for students and post-doc.
