Our second Bruin Lab publication is out today in Scientific Reports. Here we show that a single high dose of a persistent pollutant (called dioxin or TCDD) leads to long-term metabolic dysregulation and impaired insulin secretion in mice. Importantly, female mice appear to be particularly susceptible to developing high blood sugar levels after dioxin exposure.

We are pleased to announce that the first Bruin Lab manuscript has been accepted for publication in Diabetologia. We show that cytochrome P450 enzymes (Cyp1a1) are induced and functional in mouse and human pancreatic islets following both in vitro and in vivo exposure.

Research Day 2019 was another success. The Bruin Lab had three outstanding Honour's Thesis students this year: Laura Harkness (L), Rayanna Merhi (M), and Kelsea McKay (R). As has become a tradition, we celebrated all the Honour's students after with the McKay Lab.
