Matthew L. Bettini, PhD

Dr. Matt Bettini’s work has focused on understanding neonatal tolerance to organ specific antigens and extended-self (microbiota). The mechanisms by which tolerance is established early in life is still unclear. His work seeks to understand how various antigen presenting cells found within the thymus can strengthen central tolerance... Read More
