Scientific summary

I'm interested in genetic and epigenetic control of pancreatic function, using different mouse models allowing analysis of the role of transcription factors and epigenetic factors. I focus on the transcription factor HNF1B and the monogenic diabetes MODY5 (Maturity Onset Diabetes of the Young), as well as histone deacetylases (HDACs), combining phenotypic, physiological, molecular, and whole genome analyzes. We study their role in differentiation and maintenance of endocrine and exocrine cells, and more recently in pancreatic exocrine regeneration and neoplasia. Our goal is to decipher the regulatory networks governing these processes, in correlation with human physiopathology, especially in pancreatic cancer.
