DO PANCREATIC STELLATE CELLS PLAY A ROLE IN PANCREATIC EXOCRINE SECRETION

Grant number: DP0772223

Abstract

3 major national benefits: 1)Alignment with research priority goals of preventative health care and ageing well ageing productively. Elucidation of mechanisms of action of CCK and the interaction of PSCs and acinar cells in mediating pancreatic secretion will help refine our approach to the prevention and treatment of disorders related to the above processes viz. maldigestion, malabsorption, obesity and pancreatic cancer. 2)Enhancement of Australia's reputation in gastrointestinal (GI) research through a unique collaboration between internationally recognised researchers in GI and pancreatic biology. 3)Training opportunities for Australian research students and scientists in physiology, gast..
