T cell immunology, autoimmunity, type 1 diabetes. Our research is focused on the mechanisms and regulation of pathogenesis in the NOD mouse model of type 1 diabetes (T1D). We use cloned T cell lines and TCR transgenic mice to study the disease process. Our goals are to acquire better understanding of how CD4 T cells contribute to pathogenesis in T1D,   investigate the beta cell autoantigens that activate autoreactive T cells, and develop new strategies for inducton of tolerance and prevention of disease.
