Bats have evolved to modulate their immune and inflammatory responses to avoid complications of viral infections.

Can lifestyle, diet and protective factors help us prevent severe complications of viral infections, and autoimmune diseases triggered by hyper-inflammatory and hyper-immune responses?  I have been working at the forefront of the battle against Type 1 Diabetes, the tip of the iceberg of the Autoimmune Disease epidemics now affecting approximately 20% of the population with over 100 disease conditions.

I believe that pro-inflammatory diets and insufficient protective factors can predispose us to hyper-inflammatory and hyper-immune reactions that can result in an increased susceptibility to triggering events of autoimmunity. Similarly, these factors can increase the risk of life-threatening complications of viral infections, such as those associated with severe cases of COVID-19.

While we are working to treat autoimmune diseases such as Type 1 Diabetes and severe cases of COVID-19 with anti-inflammatory and immuno-modulating stem cell infusions we are launching an international collaboration (The Batman Project) to study how bioactive dietary components and protective factors could complement healthy diets to modulate inflammation, immunity, and other variables associated with disease progression.
