Project Summary

In her current work Rebecca is combining her interests in the different aetiologies of diabetes with her experience in islet autoantibodies and pancreatic histology. She is working to perform bioinformatics-based human genetic research to gain insights into the pathogenesis and development of autoimmune diabetes. 

Wider Research Interests

  • Gene discovery in monogenic autoimmunity
  • Epigenetic profiling of regulatory T-cells in patients with Immune dysregulation, polyendocrinopathy, enteropathy, X-linked (IPEX) syndrome
  • Histology of Diabetes in Downs Syndrome
  • Autoantibody profiles in early onset type 1 diabetes and genetic forms of diabetes
  • Immunohistology of type 1 diabetes
