My project will investigate insulin secretion from an islet, in relation to its varying architectures, sizes and distributions of alpha-, beta-, and delta-cells. Control mechanisms to be modeled include 1) glucagon-producing alpha-cells as a promoter of both beta and delta cells and 2) somatostatin-producing delta-cells as a repressor of both beta and alpha cells.
