Welcome to the Poitout Lab.
The mission of our laboratory is to elucidate the mechanisms controlling beta-cell function and mass and identify potential targets for the treatment of Type 2 diabetes. We use complementary approaches from whole animal physiology to cell and molecular biology. We also thrive to offer an outstanding training environment for students and post-docs.
