You do not have to sign-up for anything, click the blue box with arrow that says “Click here to start download from sendspace”. There are several ads, don’t download iLivid! If you have any troubles please let me know asap.

Final Project Presentation


Allan Ropski, Project proposal


Allan Ropski, Student

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.
