Dr. Rachel Friedman was awarded a grant from the Helmsley Charitable Trust in 2023 for her work mononuclear phagocyte populations in T1D islets. Dr. Friedman's research interests include how T cells interact with antigen presenting cells at the disease site can result in T cell activation or tolerance. Her main aim is to understand how the immune system dynamically regulates immune responses though cellule responses and environmental cues and develop therapeutic interventions to disrupt pathogenic cellular interactions that promote autoimmunity.
Congratulations to Dr. Maki Nakayama, the recipient of the 2022 George Eisenbarth Memorial Lecture at the 14th annual (Network for Pancreatic Organ Donors with Diabetes (nPOD) meeting. Dr. Nakayama was honored for her outstanding research program investigating insulin-specific T cell populations present in the islets of individuals with type 1 diabetes.
