Autoimmune Endocrine Diseases : NIDDK

Autoimmune Endocrine Diseases

This program emphasizes support of investigator-initiated basic and clinical research relating to autoimmune endocrine diseases, including type 1 diabetes and autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD). Applications that address the etiology and pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes, immunology, and viral etiology of diabetes are included. Studies utilizing animal models to further our understanding of type 1 diabetes are of continuing interest to this program. Studies which emphasize autoimmune thyroid disease, including Graves' Disease, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and their complications are included. Humanized animal models of AITD are also included.
