Dr. Ziaur Rahman – Lupus Research [Part 1]

Dr. Ziaur Rahman – Lupus Research [Part 1]

Arthritis Now sat down with Ziaur Rahman, MD, PhD, and talked about the research position he currently holds and the exciting research he’s doing regarding lupus. Dr. Rahman was an Arthritis National Research Foundation grant recipient from 2010-2011 when he began investigating the tolerance of lupus, which is what he is still currently focusing on. One of the outcomes of Dr. Rahman’s ANRF grant was his ability to obtain an Assistant Professor position in microbiology and immunology at Penn State.

As a clinician and researcher, Dr. Rahman’s experience and love of helping patients has crossed over into the laboratory where he remains passionate about helping those diagnosed with this misunderstood disease, so that hopefully one day he can find a cure.

You can find out more about the research being done at Penn State University on their Microbiology and Immunology Lab page.

    I found out through researching about Lupus the wonderful strides that are being studied to find a cure. I want to thank Dr. Rahman for his gracious, kind and heart of advocacy in wanting to find a cure for this chronic, and painful illness. I am managing close to 5 years now. I am thankful for my Rheumatologist and related physicians for their care, concern and tenacious educational curiosity in battling this illness with their patients. Thank you for your research and time of study in the labs, and formulating theories on how to solve this. Unlocking the secrets of the human body is never an easy job. I pray that God will hear our prayers to relieve the suffering of this illness and a cure will be found.
