Jonathan D. Katz, PhD
T cells; MHC, beta cell death; islet antigens
Immunology, autoimmunity, type 1 diabetes
Jonathan D. Katz, PhD, focuses on autoimmune diabetes research. Autoimmune diabetes, also known as type 1 diabetes (T1D), is the most common pediatric autoimmune disease. Roughly 1/250 individuals develop T1D in the United States.There is currently no cure for T1D and the only treatment is daily exogenous insulin replacement therapy. Many T1D patients eventually develop secondary complications, such as hearth disease, blindness, peripheral neuropathy and renal failure.
Dr. Katz's work focuses on the role that autoreactive T lymphocytes play in the disease process. His lab interested in (1) the control of autoreactive T cells via central and peripheral tolerance, (2) the role NKT cells play in regulating autoreactive T cells, and (3) the role dendritic cells play in activating and regulating autoreactive T cells in T1D.
Most of his work uses the non-obese diabetic (NOD) mouse strain that spontaneously develops T1D with remarkable similar to the T1D seen in human patients. The availability of the NOD strain has allowed us to take a modern, reductionist molecular and cellular immunology approach to understanding the mechanism(s) and genetics underlying T1D susceptibility and disease progression. His lab makes extensive use of knockout, transgenic, regulated gene expression, targeted ablation, cell transfer and genomic studies the progression and regulation of T1D in the NOD mouse.

Adherence in youth with type 1 diabetes
Nana-Hawa Yayah Jones, MD, is a new clinical faculty in the division of pediatric endocrinology. Dr. Yayah Jones recently arrived in Cincinnati from St. Louis, Missouri where she completed both pediatric residency and endocrinology fellowship at Washington University's St. Louis Children's Hospital (SLCH). An additional year was spent at SLCH as a pediatric chief resident. During all the years of Dr. Yayah Jones's training she was active in fostering diversity among the medical trainees and in fact founded the Washington University Minority Medical Association (WUMMA), a group of medical trainees whose focus was on recruitment, retention and community service. As creator and president of WUMMA she became active in the resident and fellows diversity initiative created by the Barnes Jewish Hospital Center for Diversity and Cultural Competence. She mentored undergraduate student, medical students and residents throughout her training.
During fellowship she fostered a special interest in children with chronic illness who are non-adherent to their medical regimen. Dr. Yayah Jone's research efforts will be geared towards the non-adherence type 1 diabetic who is often prone to recurrent hospitalizations and diabetes complications.

Care of children with diabetes
Clinical research related to diabetes
Debra A. Standiford, MSN, APRN, CNP, has been an employee of Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center since 1975.
From 1975 to 1977, Debra worked as a staff nurse on a chronic care unit, when she was promoted to charge nurse. She assumed the role of head nurse of the Orthopedic unit in 1978.
In 1980 and 1981, Debra worked part-time as a staff nurse on the Hematology/ Oncology unit and graduated with a bachelor's degree in nursing from the University of Cincinnati. She worked as pediatric extension program liaison in nursing education. The focus of her work was the coordination of clinical experiences for undergraduate nursing students from local universities, colleges, and schools of nursing.
Debra assisted in orienting newly employed nurses and presenting in-services for clinical and managerial nurses. During 1983 and 1984, she was acting director of Educational Services for Nursing and assumed the role of educational nurse specialist while pursuing further education. She graduated with a master's degree in nursing management from Indiana University in 1987. She was promoted to nursing director of the Neurosurgical/Tracheostomy unit.
In 1992, Debra assumed the role of diabetes research nurse. The major focus of her work was the coordination of clinical research studies related to diabetes in children and young adults.
Debra has completed postgraduate studies at the University of Cincinnati, and in 1989, was certified as a pediatric nurse practitioner. Currently, Debra works with families of children diagnosed with diabetes. She also continues to function as a coordinator of clinical research studies related to diabetes.
