The Vazquez Lab

Unlocking the mechanisms behind diabetes progression from an engineering perspective.

We are a highly diverse and collaborative group of scientists and academics centered at Wheaton College. We are interested in studying the biomechanical influence on the function of the islet of Langerhans in healthy and diseased models. In our lab, we value people over science and hope to use our research findings to change the world. Learn more about our research, our team, and areas of study below.
