New Breakthrough in Diabetes

A team of Researchers lead by Tim Kieffer used stem-cells transplants to reverse diabetes in diabetic mice.

Diabetes Research Group Ad in the National Post

The attached ad for the LSI Diabetes Research Group appeared in the National Post on Thursday, Nov 10, 2011 accompanied by a ‘write-up’ contributed by Tim Kieffer.  

Diabetes Handout

This handout is designed to introduce and illustrate the research happening within the LSI Research Groups.

Yip Lab:

“The entire cell can be viewed as a factory that contains an elaborate network of interlocking assembly lines, each of which is composed of a set of large protein machines.” – Bruce Alberts

Clee Lab:

In the 'Clee' Lab we use genetics as a tool to gain insight into novel pathways promoting obesity and diabetes.

Jan Lab:

The regulation of gene expression at the translational level is fundamental for normal cellular homeostasis and survival.

Kieffer Lab:

The ‘Laboratory of Molecular and Cellular Medicine’ consists of students (graduate & undergraduate), technicians and postdoctoral fellows dedicated to developing novel and innovative therapeutic approaches for diabetes.

Johnson Lab:

The Laboratory of Molecular Signalling in Diabetes is a dynamic team of individuals focused on understanding the causes of type 1 and type 2 diabetes at a molecular level.

McIntosh Lab:

My research focuses on the modes of action of gastrointestinal hormones involved in the regulation of insulin secretion and fat metabolism, and the pathophysiological consequences of altered function in obesity and non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM).

Brownsey Lab:

The research in the Brownsey Laboratory is directed to understanding the molecular mechanisms by which hormones bring about changes in cell metabolism and function.
