• The role of exosome in diabetes

    Romano Regazzi’s group is investigating the role of exosomes and other extracellular vesicles in the crosstalk between pancreatic β-cells and immune cells invading the islets during the development of different forms of diabetes. The research team uses RNA sequencing technologies to analyze the contents of extracellular vesicles released by immune cells and monitors the transfer of non-coding RNAs to β-cells using an RNA-tagging approach.
