We'd like to introduce you to a new member of the Diabetes Center, Srinath Sanda, MD. Dr. Sanda received his undergraduate degree at UC San Diego, his medical degree at UC Davis, and completed his residency training in internal medicine and pediatrics at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in LA. He then went on to complete a pediatric endocrinology fellowship at UC San Diego where he worked in the immunology laboratory of Dr. Matthias von Herrath.
Prior to joining UCSF, he worked at the University of Washington/Seattle Children’s Hospital as a pediatric endocrinologist and the Benaroya Research Institute in Seattle where he conducted translational and clinical research on type 1 diabetes.
Dr. Sanda's research interests center on the role of monocytes and the IL-1 pathway in the pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes and related complications. He also works on: 1) developing biomarkers from type 1 diabetes immune modulating trials, 2) exploring the role of hyperglycemia in modulating immune responses, and 3) developing models of how genetic variants in metabolic genes alter insulin secretion and autoimmunity.
