Genomics, using techniques of gene sequencing and bioinformatics, will allow scientists and physicians to understand fully the complexities of our genetic information and translate this information into treatment of diseases through the development of new diagnostics and therapeutics. The Center is focused on defining and understanding genes associated with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and other autoimmune and inflammatory diseases

Research utilizes state-of-the-art genomic approaches to study autoimmune diseases with the goal to:

  • Understand the regulation and function of disease-associated genes
  • Understand how disease-associated genetic variants contribute to disease
  • Identify new genes associated with autoimmune diseases
  • Use this new knowledge to develop more effective and personalized therapies

Key members of the David Z. Rosensweig Genomics Research Center include:
