About This Project

The objectives of the projets are: (i) to establish the multi-omics cell type-specific profiles for pancreatic Langerhans islet cells to the pathogenesis of diabetes; (ii) to quantify the heterogeneity of cells in Langerhans islet samples; (iii) to determinate the effect methylation DNA age-acceleration in the pathogenesis of diabetes relative to chronological age.
