FUNDING


 

Agency logo Period Grant Description
2020-2021

UiB Research Scholarship for a stay abroad

One year research stay at the University of Geneva, Switzerland, hosted by Prof. Pedro Herrera. The aim of the planned research is to identify the cell fate decisions and molecular changes that contribute to the altered islet architecture through the use of advanced transgenic lineage tracing.

2020-2024 PhD Project: In vivo regeneration of insulin-expressing β-cells
We plan to use complex genetic setups to dynamically characterize the surviving β-cell reply to injury and to stress, then subsequently foster their regeneration by reactivating/maintaining specific molecular switches.
