College of the Atlantic Students Publish Research Findings

Through opportunities provided by INBRE, two College of the Atlantic students are published authors in The Journal of Immunology. The papers outline the development of models created to study type 1 diabetes using human genes and the development of models for the study of myocarditis, the inflammation and failure of heart tissue caused by cancer immunotherapy. These improved models will provide researchers with more efficient methods for the diagnosis and treatment of these immunodeficiencies. “Having undergraduate students work with a world-class institution like JAX, and with scientists on the cutting edge of genetic research, is an incredible opportunity, and one that truly differentiates College of the Atlantic from other colleges.” – COA president Dr. Darron Collins.
