Olof Idevall-Hagren receives prize from the Göran Gustafsson foundation


Olof Idevall-Hagren, researcher at the Department of Medical Cell Biology, has been awarded the 2014 Gustafsson prize. The prize is awarded to young researchers and the amount of 2 million kr will be used to establish independent research.



Olof Idevall-Hagren´s research aims at understanding the molecular mechanisms that control the function of the insulin-secreting cells in the pancreas and how these mechanisms change during diabetes. He is especially interested in a cellular structure called the endoplasmic reticulum that is responsible for the production of insulin and the function of which is impaired in diabetes.
