Our immune system protects us against infectious disease, but sometimes attacks our own cells, causing autoimmune disease. My group develop and apply statistical genomic methods to understand the genes, cells and pathways involved in the aetiology of autoimmune diseases such as type 1 diabetes and the relationships between different autoimmune diseases. Our goal is to further the understanding of these diseases in order to help prevent and treat them.
