Dr. C B Sanjeevi heads the research group, Diabetes-Immunology (which was formerly referred to as Molecular Immunogenetics group). The group focuses its research on Autoimmune diabetes, which include Type 1 Diabetes, LADA and other forms of Diabetes with autoimmune basis, eg: Malnutrition Modulated Diabetes Mellitus. Autoimmune Diabetes has a strong genetic basis (its incidence in Sweden is one of the highest in the world). My group’s main interest lies in the understanding of the bio markers, immunogenetic factors, especially its structural and functional aspects of these genes, in the understanding of the etiology of the disease and finding ways to predict the disease and possibly to prevent the disease.
