Rheumatology Research

The foundation of Johns Hopkins Children’s Center is research.  

As the birthplace of academic pediatrics in the United States more than a century ago, Johns Hopkins Children's Center has been at the forefront of research. Our physician-scientists are actively working to better understand the causes of rheumatological diseases and to develop more effective diagnostic tools and treatments. Two major areas of focus are systemic lupus erythematosus and lupus nephritis.
