SANDER LAB

 

News

The Sander lab is focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms that underlie the formation of endocrine cells in the pancreas. Our studies aim to identify strategies, by which to generate replacement insulin-producing cells for treatment of diabetes.

Specifically, we are combining mouse genetic, ES-cell-based, biochemical and genomic approaches to identify the key transcription factor-mediated gene activation and gene silencing events that control endocrine cell differentiation.
