Debates in Pancreatic Beta Cell Biology

About this Research Topic

This Research Topic of Frontiers in Endocrinology wishes to foster debates with pros and cons on timely and pressing topics in the field of pancreatic beta cell biology in health and diabetes.

The debates are led by scientists from leading research groups in their respective fields and are on topics ranging from molecular mechanisms over physiology, technical aspects to clinical applications.

The articles are particularly dedicated to readers working in the field of pancreatic beta cells and diabetes, but also of potential interest to other life scientists. Topics of interest includes, but are not restricted to, human beta cell function, proliferation, dedifferentiation, death, ER stress, beta cell heterogeneity and hubs, genetics and epigenetics, single cell-based gene expression, islet vascularization and innervation, human stem cell-derived islets, islet transplantation, beta cell-directed drugs, and artificial pancreas.


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
