Imaging immune suppression in type 1 diabetes
It is still unknown what triggers development of type 1 diabetes, and underlying immune mechanisms are not fully understood. In my lab, we are exploring the behavior of immune cells in the pancreas at high resolution using intravital multiphoton imaging. In this talk, I will present some of our recent insights into new endogenous immune regulatory mechanisms involving both unconventional regulatory T cells, and neuro-immune crosstalk which both may hold promises for future treatments. I will also present our use of other imaging modalities to gather information on the pancreatic islet microenvironment.
