Professor of Immunobiology and of Medicine (Endocrinology)
Executive Director, Yale Diabetes Center
Deputy Director, Yale Center for Clinical Investigation
My background and research are in translational immunology. I am interested in understanding the basis for autoimmune diseases and developing new therapies based on our understanding of disease mechanisms. My focus has largely been in the field of autoimmune Type 1 diabetes. The work encompasses basic laboratory work understanding the regulation of autoreactive T cells to clinical trials that involve novel therapeutics. As part of these studies I have also been very interested in analysis of...
Waldemar Von Zedtwitz Professor of Immunobiology and Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology
Professor of Molecular Cellular and Developmental Biology
Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute
Akiko Iwasaki received her Ph.D. from the University of Toronto (Canada) in 1998, and her postdoctoral training from the National Institutes of Health (USA) (1998-2000). She joined Yale University (USA) as a faculty in 2000, and currently is an Investigator of the HHMI and a Professor of Department of Immunobiology and Department of Molecular Cellular and Developmental Biology. Akiko Iwasaki’s research focuses on the mechanisms of immune defense against viruses at the mucosal surfaces. Her...
My laboratory uses intricate tumor models and advanced approaches to investigate immune cell interactions with developing tumors. My goal is to determine mechanistically why these interactions do not lead to more potent anti-tumor responses and to identify entry points for modulating these interactions through genetic manipulation and therapeutic intervention. My previous studies have focused on using established complex mouse models to investigate how subtypes of T cells in the tumor...

Chair, Women's Faculty Forum
Dr. Kavathas graduated with a B.A. in American Institutions, from the University of Wisconsin, writing her thesis on the role of Science in America in the 1960s. She obtained her Ph.D. in Genetics from the Department of Genetics, founded in 1921 as the first Genetics Department in the country. At Wisconsin with Dr. Robert DeMars on genetic analysis of the MHC region. As a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University with Dr. Leonard Herzenberg she developed a novel approach for cloning genes...
Associate Professor of Pathology
Dr. Steven Kleinstein received a B.A.S. in Computer Science from the University of Pennsylvania and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Princeton University. He is currently an Associate Professor of Pathology and Immunobiology at the Yale School of Medicine, and a member of the Interdepartmental Program in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, and the Human Translational Immunology Program. While formally trained in Computer Science, Dr. Kleinstein has been working on applications in...
Assistant Professor of Immunobiology and of Medicine (Rheumatology)
Dr. Kriegel is an Assistant Professor of Immunobiology and of Medicine (Rheumatology) at Yale School of Medicine. In 2001, he received his MD/PhD equivalent at the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen, Germany, followed by the German Medical Licensure in 2002. From 2003 to 2006, he performed postdoctoral training in immunology at Yale with Dr. Richard Flavell before completing a medicine residency and rheumatology fellowship at Harvard (Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Brigham &...
Assistant Professor of Immunobiology
Dr. Carrie L. Lucas received her PhD from Harvard Medical School and her postdoctoral training from the National Institutes of Health, NIAID. Her laboratory investigates signaling in T cells from healthy people and patients with inherited immune disorders to dissect pathways critical for adaptive immunity. A major focus of her work has been on phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3K) signaling and mechanisms of disease in immunodeficient patients with activating mutations in PI3K subunits.
