|Presenter Name||Scott Soleimanpour, MD, University of Michigan|
|Presentation Title||Quality or Quantity: Beta cell mitochondrial health in the development of diabetes|
|Status||This meeting has already occurred|
The Soleimanpour lab focuses on the underlying mechanisms regulating the mitochondrial life cycle and mitochondrial quality control in pancreatic beta cells, using genetically encoded mitochondrial biosensors, human islets, metabolic assays, and mouse genetic models. We will describe our current work to determine the consequences of mitochondrial dysfunction in the context of aging and obesity, two major risk factors for the development of diabetes.
