- Our research is focused on the pathogenesis of diabetes, with the goal of identifying novel therapeutic targets. Diabetes is a complex disease, and the Linnemann Lab utilizes a number of different molecular, animal, and imaging techniques to study the pancreatic islet in the context of disease pathogenesis. Students entering the lab can expect to learn basic cell/molecular biology and microscopy techniques while studying how the insulin-producing beta-cell responds to stress that could lead to the development of diabetes.
- Internship Duties:
- Tissue culture, DNA/RNA/protein analysis, cloning, microscopy.
