UMMS  Researchers Isolate Immune Cells From the Islets of Donors with Type 1 Diabetes

As recently published in Nature Medicine, nPOD Investigators at UMMS have developed the first large bank of islet-infiltrating T cells isolated from the islets of human donors with T1D. Their findings have direct implications for the design of therapies and preventative strategies for those with T1D and those at-risk for developing it. This work is the result of a collaborative effort made by many Investigators around the world, including those in nPOD’s Autoimmunity Working Group. Congratulations to all involved on this significant achievement!
