nPOD Working Groups

The nPOD working groups investigate specific points of interest in diabetes research.

For concept proposals, please submit the sections of the nPOD Project Application Form that corresponds to working groups.


nPOD Viral

nPOD-V represents a self-assembled collaborative effort with the goal of investigating the role of viruses in T1D through the study of nPOD samples.


nPOD Autoimmunity

The nPOD-A group studies autoreactive T cells, B cells and other immune cell types with multiple goals:  defining T cell receptor sequences,  defining antigen specificities and functional properties, and identifying therapeutic targets.


nPOD Extracellular Matrix

The nPOD-ECM group is interested in the study of extra-cellular matrix components in the pathogenesis of T1D.


nPOD Omics

This group aims to establish standardized ‘omics data for each precious sample to better understand T1D pathogenesis.


nPOD Transplant

nPOD-T is aimed at scientifically researching human pancreatic tissue from organ donors who have had a pancreas transplant.
