Programmed death-1-Programmed death-1 ligand (PD-1-PDL-1) pathway in the New Zealand Black x New Zealand white murine model: a molecular approach

Dr. Wong’s research will study the molecular pathway of lupus using a mouse model. Studies have shown that mutation in the gene responsible for this particular pathway results in increased susceptibility to systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE or lupus) in humans and in mice. Dr. Wong will investigate the molecular pathways in three ways. She expects that the results of these tests will provide greater insight to human autoimmunity.

The Arthritis National Research Foundation's mission is to provide initial research funding to brilliant, investigative scientists with new ideas to cure arthritis and related autoimmune diseases. Writing articles about the patients affected and the science being done to find a cure shows why we need to come together to #CureArthritis!
