Allergy, Immunology and Rheumatology (AIR) Division researchers are dedicated to elucidating underlying pathways responsible for autoimmune, inflammatory and allergic diseases and translating this to innovative treatments for patients. Individual areas of focus include basic mechanisms of altered bone remodeling in psoriatic and rheumatoid arthritis, inflammation at the bone joint interface in rheumatoid arthritis, basic mechanisms of B cell mediated immunity in SLE and translational studies of the Old Mennonite population to better understand the biologic mechanisms that underlie the low rates of autoimmune and allergic diseases in this population. In addition, the Division has a close working relationship with the Center for Musculoskeletal Research, is a member of the NIH Accelerated Medicines Partnership and is a World Allergy Organization Center of Excellence.
