If you've been following the Vasculitis Foundation's Roadmap to Wellness Series you might be interested to know that they will be holding their fifth webinar on Wednesday, September 24, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. – 3:45 p.m. Eastern time (USA).
The founder and principal investigator of the Translational Program in Vasculitis, at the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, which is part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is Dr. Peter Grayson.
Dr. Grayson has led several successful clinical outcomes projects and holds a leadership role with the Vasculitis Clinical Research Consortium (VCRC), where he also completed a fellowship. He focused on research and clinical aspects of vasculitis in that VCRC program. He serves as the representative to a major international collaboration to develop novel diagnostic and updated classification criteria in several forms of systemic vasculitis with the American College of Rheumatology.
His specific area of research includes biomarker discovery and development through gene expression profiling, and other genomic techniques, clinical epidemiology and immunology, disease classification, and clinical trials in vasculitis.
