c-Cbl in the development of autoimmune arthritis

T cells are the critical components in the initiation and the maintenance of autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis. Dr. Myung-Shin Jeon will analyze mice with collagen-induced arthritis to understand the molecular function of certain proteins in the development of arthritis. This may help identify novel therapeutic approaches for the treatment of human autoimmune arthritis (RA) and other autoimmune disorders.
