I am a rheumatologist with clinical training in general rheumatology but my main interests and focus are Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
We are currently conducting clinical trials in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus, skin sampling and we see patients in our Autoimmunity clinic (Lupus clinic webpage in development)
My training included also clinical research in rheumatoid arthritis (focusing on cyclic citrullinated peptide antibodies), and role of inflammation on bone
