Sally Kent’s focus in type 1 diabetes research is in the autoreactive T cell repertoire directly from the islets from human donors with type 1 diabetes. Her goal is to understand the breadth and function of this repertoire in the pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes and how this repertoire may be inhibited. She has been involved with nPOD since its inception in 2007, has served as Task and Group Leader for the Viral and Autoimmunity Working Groups, respectively, and is now a Co-Leader for Team Science with nPOD.
