With a series of rodent models, Dr. Bonner-Weir has provided compelling evidence that adult pancreatic beta-cell mass increases in response to a metabolic need and her lab has been examining the mechanisms of postnatal pancreatic growth. More broadly, her lab's focus is on how the pancreatic beta cell changes with age and response to challenges.... Read more about Susan Bonner-Weir, PhD
