Dr. Erika Noss, MD, PhD, is a clinician, researcher, and educator with our Division. She discussed the intersection of her work in the clinic and the lab as well as the future of rheumatology research with online publication Healthgrades.
"I feel privileged to be a practicing rheumatologist as well as a researcher. I get to treat patients and also spend time performing research that may one day benefit them. The last few decades have seen huge breakthroughs in RA treatment and we’ve witnessed an explosion of new medications in the last 10 years. The research that comes out of the next 10 to 20 years will increase our understanding of this disease even more, letting us treat RA even more effectively and, maybe one day, curing the disease altogether."
