Poster #11: Awais Ahmad – Are Adrenergic Receptors expressed on VMH Glutamatergic Neurons

Faculty mentor: Owen Chan

My research is based around Diabetes, particularly hypoglycemia which is mostly seen in type 1 diabetes patients. The current study evaluates the expression of ß2 adrenergic receptors (ß2AR) on VMH glutamatergic neurons. Employing Immuno-histochemistry (IHC), the colocalization of VGlut2, a marker for glutamatergic neurons and ß2AR are evaluated in preserved rodent brain slices.
