Diabetes Research Lab

Student Darren Raptis.

The ASU Diabetes Research Lab conducts various basic science and human research projects. The primary focus is to investigate the effects of Physical Therapy interventions including physical agents (i.e. electrical stimulation, ultrasound, and infrared) and exercise on diabetes. The lab is well-equipped for essential tissue and cell culture studies. By collaborating with the ASU Agriculture Department, one of the current research domains is to conduct in vitro studies using insulin-producing islet cells, which are isolated from the pig pancreas.

The Diabetes Research Lab is located in the Ben Kelly Center for Human Performance, room 141.
