CCTI Scientist Featured in Humans of New York

Humans of New York, the popular blog that uses images of New Yorkers to create a photographic census of the city, featured CCTI scientist Nichole Danzl recently to discuss her work on autoimmunity.


"I wanted to delve into the complexity of human immunology where individual variation in genetic makeup and environment all contribute to differences in immune function", Danzl says. "The overarching purpose of my research at CCTI is to understand how tolerance becomes broken in patients with autoimmune diseases. The Personalized Immune Mouse Model that we developed combines strategies of central and peripheral tolerance induction and allows study of the genetic lesions that drive autoimmunity in humans."
