DRWF Research: Severe insulin resistance in type 1 diabetes
The title of Dr Hanna’s research is ‘Identifying islet antigen specific lymphocytes by recruitment to intradermally injected autoantigens, using single cell RNA sequencing: a route to novel cell-based therapies and immune monitoring’.
Dr Stephanie Hanna said: “The title of my research is essentially identifying the white blood cells that damage the pancreas and monitoring them using new single cell RNA sequencing techniques as a way to develop new treatments for type 1 diabetes.”
Dr Hanna added: “Funding from charities such as DRWF is important because DRWF really understands what matters to people living with diabetes. It enables our research to really focus on those key issues.
“With this fellowship, what DRWF is doing is giving the ability for me, as an upcoming researcher, to develop the new ideas and bring in new ways of thinking.
“I would like to thank DRWF for this funding because it has been an amazing opportunity for me. I would also like to thank all the participants who have taken part in our research.”
