Edit Profile


Research Narrative:

 My major interest is therapeutics in rheumatoid arthritis. I directed a research team that was involved in the first studies of methotrexate in rheumatoid arthritis as well as most the biologics used in rheumatoid arthritis. I currently co-direct a large patient registry in rheumatoid arthritis called BRASS.
