Research & Clinical Interests
Clinical Interests: 

Dr. Andrews conducts clinical outcomes research that studies how various rheumatologic illnesses impact physical disability, body composition, and muscle strength.  His current projects use a variety of epidemiological and biostatistics methods to examine: 1) how muscle weakness leads to physical disability in lupus and rheumatoid arthritis; 2) relationships between chronic inflammation, skeletal muscle function, and body composition in lupus; 3) anti-cholesterol medications and risk of adverse effects on physical function; and 4)  aging-related changes in physical function and body composition in rheumatoid arthritis.
