Dr. Simmons joined the faculty in 2016 as a physician scientist studying the clinical immunology of autoimmune disease, with a focus on type 1 diabetes. Her current research interests are to screen children in the general population for islet autoantibodies (early T1D), hone techniques to study the immune cells that participate in the pathogenesis of T1D and participate as an investigator in prevention trials with the goal of finding an intervention that can modulate the autoimmune attack in the pancreas. She has received a JDRF Career Development Award, and K12 award to support this work. She is also an investigator of the Autoimmunity Screening for Kids program and of Type 1 Diabetes TrialNet with a specific interest in following patients who are enrolled in immune prevention trials.
