Jennifer Barnett Moss
Assistant Professor in Medicine

As part of the Sarah W. Stedman Nutrition and Metabolism Center and the newly appointed Duke Molecular Physiology Institute, our lab works on the regeneration of beta cells and their altered metabolic status during disease. We manipulate the remarkable ability of the zebrafish pancreas to re-grow beta cells after toxic insults and translate our findings into rodent and human models. Much of our research involves quantifying intracellular signaling after small molecule interrogation of beta cells in vivo, generating useful pharmacological, physiological and molecular profiles during beta cell regeneration. The lab is also a resident of Duke’s Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism and Nutrition within the Department of Medicine. Our studies are ultimately related to translational human trials pertaining to diabetes and obesity.
