 Pamela Fain, PhD
 Professor Emerita


I have a broad background in genetics research, and over 30 years’ experience in productive research projects with an emphasis on human disease gene mapping, including genetic linkage studies of Mendelian and complex diseases and genetic association analyses of various autoimmune diseases, primarily type 1 diabetes and vitiligo, with the vast majority of these projects funded by NIH grants.  Over the past 15 years, I have collaborated with the PI, Dr. George Eisenbarth, on many different projects relating to the genetics of type 1 diabetes and associated autoimmunity.  I have extensive experience with the databases and analyses of demographic, family history, autoantibody and genotyping data that have been collected as part of DAISY project, as well as new onset patients, and have had a primary role in studies of initially disease-discordant monozygotic and dizygotic twins, including twin ascertainment and development of our twin database. I served as the Director of Genotyping Mutation Screening Core Facility for the Human Medical Genetics Program and have published 124 original articles in peer-review journals.
