My primary areas of interest and research involve two main areas:
- Inflammatory myositis - polymyositis, dermatomyositis, and inclusion body myositis. I am a member of the Medical Advisory Board for The Myositis Association
- Vasculitis - giant cell arteritis, Takayasu arteritis, polyarteritis nodosa, granulomatosis with polyangiitis (Wegener's), microsopic polyangiitis, Churg-Strauss syndrome, and other forms of vasculitis. I am a member of the steering committee for the NIH-funded Vasculitis Clinical Research Consortium.
