Speake Lab

Introduction

Our group is interested in advancing clinical research – especially in type 1 diabetes, but also in the context of other immune-mediated diseases.

We focus on development and utilization of rigorous analytical methods to identify immune features associated with clinical outcomes, including progression of disease and response to therapy. We also seek to implement cutting-edge clinical trial designs, including use of short-term interventions with mechanistic outcomes and novel considerations of trial outcome measures.

With Drs. Lord and Smithmyer, Dr. Speake oversees BRI’s biorepositories. Her group collaborates with other academic researchers worldwide and facilitates collaborations with biotech and pharma companies. She also oversees BRI’s Clinical Core Laboratory, which is responsible for sample processing and storage for the hundreds of thousands of samples currently stored in the BRI biorepository.
