Diabetes in Control speaks with top endocrinologists and other medical professionals to bring you the latest in diabetes news and research. This week, we have another exclusive interview from ADA 2017.
Dr. Mark O. Huising completed his formal education in the Netherlands, where he spent his PhD studying the evolution of immune and endocrine systems in early vertebrates. This work led to an invitation to join the lab of the famous neuroendocrinologist Dr. Wylie Vale at the Salk Institute in La Jolla. There he became interested in pancreatic islets. From these early days, Dr. Huising established his independent research program focusing on the regulation of fate and function of the alpha, beta and delta cells that make up pancreatic islets. Dr. Huising is the recipient of a Career Development Award from the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, a Hartwell Foundation Individual Biomedical Research Award and the Novo Nordisk Award for Endocrinology. He currently is an assistant professor at the University of California, Davis.
