Dr. Mathis’ laboratory works in the fields of T-cell differentiation and autoimmunity. Her work on autoimmunity explores the immunological mechanisms of type-1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and autoimmune-polyendocrinopathy-candidiasis-ectodermal dystrophy (APECED) using modern genetic and genomic approaches, in both human patients and mouse models. She is a pioneer in the emerging field of Immunometabolism.

Dr. Mathis has been a member of the US National Academy of Sciences since 2003, the German Academy, Leopoldina since 2007 and the American Academy of Arts & Sciences since 2012.
