Ronald G Gill
Dr. Gill is Professor of Surgery and Immunology at the University of Colorado Denver and the Scientific Director of the Colorado Center for Transplantation Care, Research and Education. Dr. Gill’s research program is focused on both the immunobiology of autoimmune diabetes and tissue/organ transplantation. His primary interest is in pancreatic islet transplantation as a treatment for insulin-dependent diabetes. As such, projects related to islet transplantation cover a range of topics including mechanisms of immune-mediated graft rejection, autoimmune pathogenesis of islet injury, mechanisms of transplant tolerance induction, and the role of metabolic distress on islet transplant outcome. Related diabetes studies address the ability to utilize bone marrow transplantation as a means of correcting the immune dysregulation associated with autoimmune diabetes. New studies involve the testing of new therapies to arrest the progression of new-onset Type 1 diabetes in pre-clinical models as part of a ITN/JDRF multi-center consortium.
