Jalal Taneera

Associated researcher

Main interest

  1. To investigate new approaches to identify novel gene contributing in T2D pathogenesis.
  2. To study the cell cycle genes in human pancreatic islets.
  3. To study the GABA signaling in human pancreatic islets.
  4. To obtain and characterize new clonal cell lines to study beta cell function.
