For diabetics, insulin injection may become as easy as taking a pill
An MIT-led research team has developed a drug capsule -- about the size of a blueberry -- that could be used to deliver oral doses of insulin, potentially replacing the injections that people with Type 1 diabetes have to give themselves every day. In tests in animals, the researchers showed that ...This is an NSF Multimedia Gallery item. (Source: NSF Multimedia Gallery)

Surveillance of Core Cellular Pathways in C. elegans for Pathogen Assaults
CCR Eminent Lectures The Ruvkun lab uses C. elegans molecular genetics and genomics to study miRNA and RNAi pathways. Using genetic and RNA interference approaches, we have identified many genes that positively or negatively regulate RNAi and microRNA pathways. These genes reveal the trajectory of siRNAs and miRNAs as they target mRNAs, as well as components that may be developed as drug targets to enhance RNAi in mammals. Over the past decade, we discovered that like mammals, C. elegans uses an insulin signaling pathway to control its metabolism and longevity. This analysis has revealed striking congruence of molecular me...

The Contribution of Bone to Whole Organism Physiology
GeroScience Interest Group The Trans-NIH GeroScience Interest Group (GSIG), cordially invites you to its spring seminar, featuring Dr. Gerard Karsenty, the Paul A. Marks M.D., Professor and Chair of the Department of Genetics and Development at Columbia University Medical Center, New York City. Dr. Karsenty's main interest is how organs interact with one another to regulate vertebrates' various physiological functions. His research focuses on bone and, through the use of genetics, he has discovered that this organ, in addition to making bone, has remarkable endocrine functions that include the regulation of insulin secreti...

Group 1 innate lymphoid cells in metabolic disease
Immunology Interest Group Seminar Series Innate lymphoid cells (ILCs) are the most recently identified arm of the innate immune system that function to protect epithelial barriers against pathogens and maintain tissue homeostasis. Although ILCs can also promote pathology at mucosal sites such as the gut or lung, it remains unknown whether aberrant activation of tissue-resident ILCs can contribute to disease in non-barrier tissues. Here, we identify a subset of long-term adipose-resident ILC1 that are dependent on the transcription factors Nfil3 and T-bet, but phenotypically and functionally distinct from circulating mature...

How to make pancreatic beta cells for diabetics
Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series Dr. Melton is interested in the developmental biology of the pancreas and in understanding the stem cells that give rise to the pancreas. In the lecture, he will discuss the challenges of making stem-cell-derived pancreatic beta cells. A primary problem for insulin-dependent diabetics is the absence (in type 1 diabetes) or dysfunction (in type 2 diabetes) of pancreatic beta cells. The ability to direct the differentiation human stem cells into beta cells opens up the possibility of using these cells for research into the causes of beta-cell loss. In addition, stem-cell-derived beta cell...
