Mechanism

Understanding type 2 diabetes at the cellular and molecular level can help inform new therapeutic options for treating those who develop this disease.

EDOR researchers use a range of techniques and model systems to help understand these processes, including DNA analysis, investigating disease-associated pathways in cells and tissues, studying animal models of diabetes, and uncovering the physiology and hormonal control of glucose metabolism.
