Investigating Autoimmunity: Stephan Kissler, Ph.D.
In type 1 diabetes, the immune system mistakenly attacks the pancreas. Many research teams at Joslin are working to better understand this complex autoimmune process.
Stephan Kissler, Ph.D. studies the genes involved in type 1 diabetes, which are spread over more than 50 genomic regions. But little is known about specific gene variants and how they impact the immune system. His goal is to uncover key defects in immune regulation that could be targeted to treat or cure type 1 diabetes.
