We are strongly committed to research.

Particular research emphasis is placed on the disease mechanisms in systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis and gout. The research conducted by the Division of Rheumatology faculty is funded by grants from the National Institutes of Health, foundations and the generosity of local donors. Research findings are published regularly in national and international scientific journals. In addition, faculty members have contributed to many textbooks on rheumatology and internal medicine.
