DF Stiefel Scholar Awardee Published in Science
Congratulations to Aimee Payne, MD, PHD, a DF Stiefel Scholar Awardee, and her colleagues on their work featured in the July issue of Science! The article, "Fighting autoimmunity with immune cells," reflects the work that was partially made possible by Dr. Payne winning the highly competitive DF award.
Dr. Payne expresses her gratitude, "I am indebted to the Stiefels and the Dermatology Foundation for supporting the basic science research into mechanisms of disease in pemphigus that facilitated the translational work in this study. This is an example of how focused study of a rare but well-defined disease has the potential to identify novel strategies to treat many other autoimmune diseases."
