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.
