'Now we have to use the skills we have developed in cell physiological studies to attack the most crucial problems in pancreatic pathology': An interview with Ole H. Petersen, Medical Research Council Professor of Physiology, University of Liverpool, UK

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review

Abstract

Dr. Ole Petersen is one of the world's leading physiologists working on signal-transduction mechanisms in pancreatic acinar cells. He discovered local apical Ca2+ signals as important regulators of acinar secretion. His work has been widely recognized, most importantly by his election as Fellow of The Royal Society in 2000 and more recently last year, when Queen Elizabeth II appointed him Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for 'Services to Science'. In this interview for Pancreatology, Dr. Petersen shares his life experiences as an innovative investigator of exocrine pancreatic function.
