Dr. Gregory Ku is an endocrinologist who cares for patients with all types of diabetes.

Ku’s research focuses on the beta cells of the pancreas, which normally produce insulin but are either destroyed or dysfunctional in type 1 and type 2 diabetes. In order to better treat diabetes, he investigates how to improve beta cell function, survival and proliferation.
