Currently, I am interested in establishing cell responses through two broad stimulation methods of our unique MIN6 sublines that are grown in 2D or 3D cell structures: 1 using photo-illuminated, surface-adherent nanorods to allow spatially and temporally precise stimulation- response patterns; and 2 using bulk chemical stimulation. These insulin secreting pancreatic cells from mice are visualized though light microscopy techniques and biological fluorescence methods to be able to track insulin containing vesicles (granules) and use this information to statistically describe cellular response upon stimulation.
