Anna Ivanova

My work aimed at developing a time-resolved reporter system for distinguishing insulin secretory granules of different ages. This technology allowed me to identify the distinctive dynamic properties of age-distinct insulin granules and confirm their different ability for exocytosis (Ivanova et., al 2013, European Patent no. 2245455). Currently my efforts are mostly devoted towards the development of a pipeline for high-throughput screening using pancreatic islets of transgenic animals expressing this reporter system.
