Metabolic and hormonal regulation of pancreatic hormone secretion

Patrik Rorsman is Professor of Diabetic Medicine at the University of Oxford. He has been at the forefront of pancreatic islets research for more than 20 years. His work integrates an unusual variety and breadth of sophisticated high-resolution methods including the whole-islet patch-clamp technique which has helped to bridge the gap between patch-clamp measurements on isolated cultured cells and hormone release by whole islets. Patrik’s work also covers human islet cells, which has revealed important differences between ß-cells in man and experimental animals that are likely to be highly relevant to the understanding of the causes and treatment of human diabetes.
