Rheumatoid Arthritis Pathways with Dr. Kalliolias [Part 1]

Dr. George Kalliolias, from the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, NY, sat down with Arthritis Now to speak about his current research and how he felt being the first grantee of the foundation to be named The Morrie Granger Fellow.

Currently, Dr. Kalliolias is looking at the activation of immune cells and new cell targets and how certain genes are turned on and off in arthritis patients. The new cell targets he’s looking are called the Synovial Fibroblasts, which reside in joints and work with the immune system to perpetuate inflammation.

Stay tuned for the conclusion of his interview in just two weeks!
