Ben Giepmans [Biosketch] research focuses on cell-cell junctions in diseases, with special interest in the pancreatic beta cell, which is destroyed in type 1 diabetes. Publications

Cellular Imaging: We combine electron microscopy, including nanotomy, with the fluorescent toolbox and develop and implement probes for correlative microscopy in clinical diagnosis and cell biology.
