Pancreatic Islet Cell Biology Core

General Mission Statement:

The main goal of the Core is to serve as a resource for Center Investigators who are studying pancreatic islet cell biology by offering islet isolation and culture, functional phenotyping of islets and consultation to optimize use of core services. We also work with investigators to adapt existing technologies to solve unique problems that cannot be addressed by standard methodologies.

List of Services:

In addition, the ICBC provides training for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and research staff in the following fields:
