Revisiting hormone control of glucose – keep your enemies close (Jennifer Estall, IRCM)

27 June 2019

General Public News 

Dr. Jennifer Estall received her Ph.D. from the University of Toronto, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School. She is currently an Associate Research Professor at the Montreal Clinical Research Institute (IRCM), and also holds academic affiliations to the University of Montreal and McGill University. Her research interests encompass early molecular mechanisms in the pathogenesis of metabolic disease, with focus on transcriptional regulators and energy metabolism.

Her current research centers on how islet cell metabolism impacts endocrine function and cell survival, molecular pathways altering metabolism in fatty liver disease, and how mitochondrial dysfunction impacts diabetes through organ crosstalk.
