  1. Resource Description
    "The Roberts laboratory has a long-term focus on various aspects of insulin and insulin-like growth factor signaling, which have crucial roles in mammalian growth and development, metabolic control, and tumorigenesis. Areas currently under investigation are: - Regulation of insulin and IGF action in adipose tissue. We have developed an ex vivo system for analysis of fatty acid uptake in rhesus macaque adipose tissue and are investigating the gender-specific action of androgens on insulin action. - Control of insulin secretion in primate islets. We are determining the role of incretin hormones such as GLP-1 on insulin secretion and islet function, including potential effects on alpha cells. - Analysis of novel insulin and glucagon analogs. We are determining the in vitro efficacy of novel insulin analogs and new formulations of glucagon to evaluate their potential utility in a bi-hormonal, closed-loop artificial pancreas device."
