EASD Islet study group

Insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells are factories dedicated to produce and secrete impressive amounts of insulin, the only hormone that can decrease circulating glucose levels. Such beta cells are found clustered within the pancreas with other endocrine cells (alpha, delta, PP…). Patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes have an insufficiency in their functional pancreatic beta cell mass. To advance diabetes treatment and to work towards a cure, a better understanding of islet cell development, regeneration, function and how to protect the pancreatic beta cells against autoimmune or metabolic assaults (e.g. obesity, gestation) is required. The EASD Islet Study Group (ISG) is a group of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD). ISG organizes yearly scientific meetings that focuse on research into islet biology in diabetes.
