In November, Thomas Serwold, Ph.D., joined Joslin as the newest junior faculty member. Dr. Serwold was formerly with the Stanford Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine at Stanford University Medical School, where he trained with Dr. Irving Weissman, the first scientist to isolate adult stem cells.

At Joslin, Dr. Serwold studies how the immune system’s T cells are generated and how they work—research that helps to shed light on what causes type 1 diabetes and other autoimmune diseases.
