Project: Type 1 Diabetes develops due to the lack of T cell tolerance to islet antigens.  T cells which recognize self-antigen are normally deleted through central or peripheral tolerance mechanisms.  Central tolerance occurs in the thymus as developing T cells are exposed to self-antigens expressed in medullary thymic epithelial cells. Peripheral tolerance occurs when mature T cells circulate through the body and encounter peripheral tissue antigens on various cells, including those of the lymph nodes.  My work focuses on the identification and characterization of genes which regulate peripheral tissue antigen expression and peripheral tolerance during the development of Type I diabetes.
