Investigating novel mediators of insulin secretion in pancreatic â-cells
We are honoured to invite Postdoctoral Fellow Sabina Paglialunga speak in the Pharmacy Research Seminar Series.
Visitors from main campus and those external to Waterloo are welcome.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dr. Paglialunga’s research focuses on understanding the cellular mechanisms influencing whole-body glucose homeostasis, type 2 diabetes and obesity. Dr. Paglialunga joined the School of Pharmacy in 2014, following completion of a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Department of Human Health and Nutritional Science at the University of Guelph where she specialized in mitochondrial redox biology in the context of health and disease. Her first Postdoctoral Fellowship was in the Muscle Metabolism and Diabetes Research Group at Maastricht University, the Netherlands where she examined the interaction between skeletal muscle mitochondrial dysfunction, ectopic fat accumulation and insulin resistance. Dr. Paglialunga completed her Ph.D. in Dr. Katherine Cianflone in the Department of Biochemistry at McGill University, examining the role of Acylation Stimulating Protein, an anabolic adipose tissue hormone. Under the mentorship of Dr. Jamie Joseph, her current research is examining regulators of islet secretion.
