The Queen was welcomed to University College London (UCL) Institute of Immunity and Transplantation, where research is taking place with the the aim of stopping the immune attack responsible for type 1 diabetes and other autoimmune conditions.
This research is funded by the Connect Immune Research Partnership, which was established by JDRF and other autoimmune charities (Versus Arthritis, MS Society and the British Society of Immunology) in 2018. The ground-breaking partnership brings together researchers with expertise in different autoimmune conditions to accelerate research and develop more sophisticated treatments and cures for the millions of people living with autoimmune conditions.
On a tour of the state-of-the art laboratories, Her Majesty learnt how immune cells from people with type 1 diabetes are studied in great depth.
