AGENDA

  • Brief overview of physiology related to insulin release, function and dysfunction.
  • Recent experimental updates
  • Brief introduction to principles of biological computation.
  • Why do beta cells need to compute before they release insulin?

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Review the role of beta cells and insulin in the body.
  • Understand the limits of classical approaches to study beta cell function.
  • Advantages of collective beta cell activity.
