Diabetes can be controlled with insulin injections, but a curative approach that restores the number of insulin-producing β-cells is still needed. Bridging developmental biology and drug discovery, we use the zebrafish model to elucidate pancreatic β-cell regeneration. We aim to identify and characterize compounds, signalling pathways and cellular mechanisms that can increase β-cell regeneration.
