Director, Islet Procurement & Analysis Core
Dr. Brissova’s research interests include the biology of pancreatic islets with a focus on the regulation of beta cell gene expression to provide insight into processes controlling normal pancreatic beta cell function in rodent models and translating this research to human islet biology. Her research also includes the study of molecular events involved in the development of pancreatic islet vasculature and innervation and their role in regulation of pancreatic islet function.
