New Webinar Announced: The Science of Vasculitis Research Webinar – May 14, 2014

May is Vasculitis Awareness Month, and vasculitis patients and families are keenly aware of the continued need for research into the diseases’ causes and improved therapies.

Where are we now with the science of vasculitis? What research is currently being conducted and what questions is it addressing? What do scientists want to learn about the diseases? What have we learned about biomarkers over the past decade? What about autoimmunity? What is the role of genetics? What about the epidemiology of the disease?

MonachConsultantJoin Dr. Paul Monach, director of the Boston University Vasculitis Center, as he describes research initiatives, including projects funded by the Vasculitis Foundation. Dr. Monach serves as a principal investigator in the Vasculitis Clinical Research Consortium (VCRC).  The VCRC is comprised of several vasculitis centers across North America and is dedicated to conducting clinical research in vasculitis.  Dr. Monach sees patients with all forms of vasculitis as well as general rheumatology patients in the outpatient rheumatology clinic.  His specific research interests in vasculitis concern biomarkers and genetics. Click here to view Dr. Monach’s complete bio.

The webinar will be recorded and will be available for viewing at a later date after being edited.
