- Clinical interest for patients
I am interested in the management of a wide-variety of autoimmune diseases including rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.
- Research interest for patients
Much of my research is focused on learning how we can identify individuals who are at risk of getting autoimmune disease before they are sick, and then prevent that disease from developing. In particular, I am the lead investigator on a trial in the USA called ‘StopRA’ where we identify people at-risk for future RA through a blood test, and then investigate whether treating them with a drug can delay or prevent future disease. You can learn more about this study as well as my other research in rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases by visiting www.stop-ra.org or calling (303) 724-8330.
