Dr. Remi Creusot, PhD

  Dr. Remi Creusot is an assistant professor in the Department of Medicine and principal investigator at the Columbia Center for Translational Immunology and the Naomi Berrie Diabetes Center. Dr. Creusot obtained his BS degree in Biochemistry and MS degree in Microbiology from the University of Nancy (France), and received his PhD in Immunology from the University of London at University College London (UK). He subsequently trained at Stanford University, where he was consecutively postdoctoral fellow, research associate and instructor in the Department of Medicine, Division of Immunology and Rheumatology. Dr. Creusot’s research interests revolve around the pathogenesis and prevention of Type 1 Diabetes. He and his group study how several processes that contribute to the maintenance of immune tolerance are impaired, allowing the progression of the disease. The lab works on several new therapeutic strategies aimed at restoring immune tolerance and blocking autoimmunity. This research allies basic research, preclinical studies using mouse models and translational studies using patient samples.
