New Publication in Diabetes

My colleagues and I have published a new manuscript in Diabetes entitled "Enhanced Glucose Control Following Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy Does Not Require a β-Cell Glucagon-Like Peptide 1 Receptor". Check it out here.

Jonathan Douros
New Publication in Cell Metabolism

I was fortunate to collaborate with Frank Huynh and Kristin Anderson on their recent work detailing the molecular function of Sirtuin 4 and its role in insulin secretion. Read more about it here.

New Publication in General and Comparative Endocrinology

My colleagues and I have had a new manuscript entitled "Metabolic stress stimulates leptin A (LepA) in the tilapia (Oreochromis mossambicus): Implications for the regulatory interaction between LepA and the hepatosomatic growth axis." in the journal General and Comparative Endocrinology.  

Jonathan Douros
Recipient of Keystone Symposia Future of Science Fund Scholarship

My thanks to the organizers of the Keystone Symposia Gastrointestinal Control of Metabolism Symposia (Z6) for not only providing the opportunity to present my work in Copenhagen, but also for the generous Keystone Symposia Future of Science Fund Scholarship to fund my travel. I will be delivering an oral presentation entitled "Increased Glucose-Dependent Insulinotropic Polypeptide (GIP) Secretion and Signaling Improves Beta-Cell Function following Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG)."
