C. Garrison Fathman
Professor of Medicine (Immunology and Rheumatology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My lab of molecular and cellular immunology is interested in research in the general field of T cell activation and autoimmunity. We use lentiviral mediated transduction of murine dendritic cells with immunoregulatory proteins for site specific and targeted immunotherapy. We have identified and characterized a gene (GRAIL) that seems to control T cell anergy. We have recently characterized a gene (Deaf1) that seems to play a major role in peripheral tolerance in T1D.
