Last December, we held a stimulating webinar on the role of macrophages in type 1 diabetes. A number of people have since expressed interest on the topic, and it has been suggested to examine more broadly the contribution of the innate immune system to the pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes. Building on the above, we would like to organize a follow-up webinar discussion possibly leading to the organization of a collaborative working group. The group could conceive an experimental strategy for coordinated investigations of nPOD donors and apply innovative study methodologies.
