Dr. Eric J. Gapud is a physician scientist and Instructor of Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His area of clinical expertise is rheumatology and a sub-specialist in vasculitis.
Dr. Gapud completed both his M.D. and Ph.D. in Molecular Immunology through the Medical Scientist Training Program at Washington University in St. Louis. He subsequently completed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis/Barnes Jewish Hospital followed by his fellowship in rheumatology at the John Hopkins University.
Dr. Gapud divides his time between seeing patients in the Johns Hopkins Vasculitis Center and conducting molecular immunology research on rheumatic disease mechanisms. He has interests in mechanisms and patient outcomes for ANCA-associated vasculitis, Giant Cell Arteritis, Behcet’s Disease, and Takayasu Arteritis. In the laboratory, his research is targeted toward understanding the patho-etiologic role of granzymes in autoimmune disease and the effects of these molecular mediators on bystander cells and tissues during normal immune responses.
