About Jamie Melling
Dr. Melling’s primary research interest resides in studying the role of exercise in Type 1 Diabetics. Through functional and histological evidence it is apparent that neurological information to the pancreas is disturbed in Type 1 diabetic patients, ultimately leading to inadequate metabolic regulation. Studies are being conducted in his laboratory to better understand the role of the nervous system in the regulation of the pancreatic secretion. By ascertaining these regulatory mechanisms, we will better be able to examine intervening methods both pharmacological and physiological (i.e. exercise), to better balance the nervous control of pancreas function in Type I diabetes.
