Chen Lab Receives 2021 Skaggs Scholars Program Award

Dr. Mingnan Chen’s lab received one of seven awards from the 2021 Skaggs Scholars Program. This award, sponsored by the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Center and the ALSAM Foundation, supports a two-year research project that develops new therapeutics for type-1 diabetes. The project will be conducted through a collaboration effort between Dr. Chen’s group and Dr. Shaodong Dai’s group at the University of Colorado. Dr. Chen is grateful to the generous support from the ALSAM Foundation which allows him and Dr. Dai to team up and explore a combination approach to suppress diabetogenic T cells and treat diabetes.
