Elina Akalestou currently works in the Section of Cell Biology and Functional Genomics, Division of Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism. She is focusing on the effects of Bariatric Surgery, a group of gastrointestinal procedures originally developed to aid weight loss, on Type 2 Diabetes remission. To do so, she explores the relationship between gastrointestinal tract and key metabolic organs.
