Biography
Northwestern UniversityPh.D1988

Overview
Dr. Grusby's research interests have been on the role of a class of transcription factors called signal transducer and activator of transcription (STATs) in the differentiation and function of T helper cell subsets. Studies from his lab have shown how manipulating STAT activity can alter the function of T helper cells and therefore change the outcome of conditions such as asthma and other inflammatory diseases. In addition, Dr. Grusby has published a number of studies on the biology of the cytokine IL-21, demonstrating its critical role in the development of diabetes. Dr. Grusby served as the past Director of the PhD in Biological Sciences in Public Health (BPH) Program within the Division of Biological Sciences and as a member of the Steering Committee for the Office for Educational Programs.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
