Juan Alvarez, Ph.D.

Juan Alvarez Joins the CDB Faculty as Assistant Professor

Welcome to CDB! Dr. Alvarez’s laboratory will study the interplay between circadian rhythms, metabolism, and cellular maturation, using stem cell-derived pancreatic islet organoids as human models. His work involves single-cell transcriptomic, epigenomic, proteomic methods and genetic, nanoelectronics-based approaches to study and control cell fate. He is especially interested in advancing replacement therapies for insulin-dependent diabetes, and harnessing control over the function and applications of any human organoid.
