“Applying In Depth Studies of Beta Cell Specific T Cells to Understand Disease Progression and Response to Therapy” with Eddie James PhD BRI
Dr. Eddie James earned his PhD in biochemical engineering at the University of Washington in 2001. After an internship at Zymogenetics, he joined the Benaroya Research Institute to manage their tetramer core. He currently leads several projects related to the role of epitope-specific T cells in autoimmune disease. Particular interests include studying how protein modifications and beta cell stress contribute to the breakdown of tolerance and applying in depth phenotype analysis to investigate changes that occur during autoimmune disease progression and in response to immune therapies. He is a member and co-leader of a working group aimed at improving disease staging of T1D patients through the use of validated biomarkers and participates in multiple collaborative projects, which characterize T cells in autoimmune disease using at-risk individuals and clinical trial participants. Performing sensitive and complex immunological assays using blood samples from variable sources places him directly on the human immunology frontline.
