Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas that allows your body to use sugar (glucose) from carbohydrates in the food that you eat for energy or to store glucose for future use. Insulin helps keeps your blood sugar level from getting too high or too low.  Thus, monitor of insulin concentration especially in vivo and during secretion process is highly interesting and desired. The overall goal of my research is to develop new nanosensors base on carbon fiber ultra microelectrode to quantify insulin during exocytosis process from Beta cells with Fast Amperometric and vesicle impact electrochemical cytometry methods.
