 May 18, 2022 (1:00 PM Eastern |  10:00 AM Pacific)

Presented by: Dr. Decio Eizirik from the ULB Center of Diabetes Research

Topics to be discussed:

  • Alpha-cells are dysfunctional but not killed in type 1 diabetes
  • Are there different mechanisms for alpha-cell dysfunction in types 1 and 2 diabetes?
  • Learning from single cell RNAseq of alpha- and beta-cells exposed to pro-inflammatory cytokines
  • How do beta- and alpha-cells respond to viral infections?
  • How do beta- and alpha-cells respond to ER stress and other pro-apoptotic stimuli?
  • A preliminary hypothesis for the alpha-cells resistance to apoptosis in type 1 diabetes
