Shawn Mahmud is a Pediatric Rheumatologist who completed MD/PhD (MSTP), residency, and fellowship training at the University of Minnesota.  He provides care to children with autoimmune and autoinflammatory diseases including juvenile idiopathic arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, dermatomyositis, mixed connective tissue disease, chronic noninfectious osteitis, vasculitis, and others. He has a long-standing interest in immunology, specifically CD4+ T cell biology. During his graduate training, Dr. Mahmud made contributions to our understanding of how regulatory T cells develop in the thymus.  His current focus is in developing peptide:MHCII tetramer-based approaches to identify, track, and phenotype important antigen-specific populations of CD4+ T cells in human disease.
