Brief description Using DNA based technologies we have focused on rare white blood cells known as regulatory T cells. These cells are policeman of the immune system and are responsible for maintaining balanced immune reactions, and preventing attack against harmless substances. These cells prevent autoimmune disease in healthy individuals, and only by first understanding how they work normally can we investigate and correct the defects in autoimmune diseases such as type 1 diabetes.
