2:45 - 3:30 pm        Regulating Immunity in Type 1 Diabetes
                                  by Dr. Megan Levings

Ustekinumab is a drug used to treat a skin condition called psoriasis that is now being re-purposed by Dr. Megan Levings and her team in a novel clinical trial in newly diagnosed young adults. The trial aims to see whether the drug could potentially slow the progression of type 1 diabetes in people that have recently been diagnosed with the disease, and if it could potentially be part of a multi-therapy in the future for reversing the disease.
