Dr. Timothy B. Niewold Receives Mary Betty Stevens Young Investigator Prize for Early Achievements
During a ceremony held in conjunction with the 2015 American College of Rheumatology Annual Scientific Meeting in San Francisco, Dr. Timothy B. Niewold, Associate Professor of Medicine at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, received the Mary Betty Stevens Young Investigator Prize. The Prize recognizes achievements in lupus research during the early part of an investigator's career. Dr. Niewold's laboratory is mapping the genetic factors that cause autoimmune diseases, and exploring the ways in which genetic variations alter the human immune response to result in disease. In this video, Dr. Niewold discusses his research in lupus and the outlook for future developments in efforts to solve the cruel mystery of lupus.
Dr. Kaplan describes her research to understand the role of inflammation in causing premature cardiovascular disease in lupus and the role of a specific white blood cell in causing lupus and its progression.
