Dr. Chih-Pin Liu is a Professor, in Department of Diabetes and Metabolic Diseases and Department of Immunology, at Beckman Research Institute of City of Hope. He received his B.S. degree from National Taiwan University, and Ph.D. degree from University of Wisconsin-Madison, followed by postdoctoral fellowships at Beth Israel Hospital/Harvard Medical School in Boston and at National Jewish Medical and Research Center in Denver. He has had long-standing research interest in understanding the mechanisms that regulate immune tolerance induction during type 1 diabetes development. His recent work has focused on using genome-wide approaches to understand the molecular mechanisms responsible for modulating the function of regulatory T cells and identifying gene targets to improve regulatory T cell function for immunotherapy.

Latest work with IntechOpen by Chih-Pin Liu

This book is intended as an overview of recent progress in type 1 diabetes research worldwide, with a focus on different research areas relevant to this disease. These include: diabetes mellitus and complications, psychological aspects of diabetes, perspectives of diabetes pathogenesis, identification and monitoring of diabetes mellitus, and alternative treatments for diabetes. In preparing this book, leading investigators from several countries in these five different categories were invited to contribute a chapter to this book. We have striven for a coherent presentation of concepts based on experiments and observation from the authors own research and from existing published reports. Therefore, the materials presented in this book are expected to be up to date in each research area. While there is no doubt that this book may have omitted some important findings in diabetes field, we hope the information included in this book will be useful for both basic science and clinical investigators. We also hope that diabetes patients and their family will benefit from reading the chapters in this book.
