OMRF scientists need volunteers for the world’s first lupus prevention study.
David Key had never heard of sarcoidosis—until the rare disease stole his health.
OMRF scientists have found a link between gum disease and lupus, an autoimmune disease.
The federal grants will support the work of two OMRF scientists who are investigating different aspects of autoimmune disease: Judith James, M.D., Ph.D., and Joan Merrill, M.D.
Two grants will enable OMRF scientists to examine genes thought to play a role in lupus.
The grant will provide Bob Axtell with $2.8 million to study NMO and investigate its similarities to other autoimmune diseases, particularly MS.
