Can cord blood Tregs suppress autoimmunity?

Utilizing a patient’s own immune system to treat autoimmunity in type 1 diabetes – the Brusko Lab publishes novel methods to grow regulatory T cells from cryopreserved umbilical cord blood.

Characterizing T & B cell diversity in T1D

Using rare human samples made available through the nPOD program (JDRFnPOD.org), the Brusko Laboratory has new findings to report on the diversity and frequency of autoreactive lymphocytes in T1D.

Our Research Focus

Our laboratory aims to harness the power of naturally occurring regulatory T cells to correct unwanted immune responses that deliver a cure for type 1 diabetes.

Our Staff

From undergraduate students to post-doctoral fellows – every set of hands is important.

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
