Tim Tree is a specialist in human T cell immunology with particular expertise in analysing the function of autoreactive and regulatory T cells in human health and disease. Tim is a Reader in Immunology in the Department of Immunobiology, King’s College London and Member of the King’s Health Partners Institute of Diabetes, Obesity and Endocrinology. He is Chair of the Diabetes UK/JDRF funded Type 1 Diabetes Immunotherapy Consortium and leads the Consortium Biomarker Core.  Tim studied Biochemistry at Imperial College London and then completed a PhD at the same institute. In 1995 Tim moved to King’s College London to embark on a programme of research to investigate the role of the immune system on the development of type 1 diabetes working with Mark Peakman. In 2005 he was the recipient of the Diabetes UK RD Lawrence Fellowship and established his own lab focussed on understanding how the balance of pathogenic and regulatory T cells influence the development of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases and how immunotherapies can change this balance and impact disease progression.
