Lupus Center of Excellence
The Lupus Center of Excellence at West Penn Allegheny Health System is dedicated to providing comprehensive care that improves the quality of life for lupus patients as we forge toward a cure.
Combined, our team of physicians, nurses, researchers and other professionals bring more than 150 years of expertise in the causes, symptoms and treatment of lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and related autoimmune disorders to our region.
Our research has yielded new testing methods that can lead to earlier and more accurate diagnosis of lupus and improve our ability to predict and treat flare-ups in lupus patients.
Our recent recruitment of a rheumatoid arthritis specialist illustrates our commitment to expanding our scope to provide world-class care to patients living with rheumatoid arthritis and other conditions in which the body’s immune system attacks healthy tissue.
With appointments to advisory committees of the Food and Drug Administration, Alliance for Lupus Research, the Lupus Foundation of America, the American College of Rheumatology, the National Arthritis Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, our physicians contribute to a broader understanding of autoimmune disorders on a national scale and exchange ideas with the world’s leading experts.
Lupus Research: Advancing Science - Improving Lives
The Lupus Foundation of America National Research Program, BRINGING DOWN THE BARRIERS™, aggressively seeks to advance the science and medicine of lupus and to improve the quality of life for people with lupus. We convene lupus experts from many medical specialties to identify urgent scientific challenges and aggressively pursue an agenda to find answers to the most difficult questions. The Lupus Foundation of America national research program has a unique three-pronged strategy: lead special initiatives, fund researchers, and advocate for expanded investment.
Taking Strides is published quarterly for patients, donors, friends and colleagues of the Lupus Center of Excellence at West Penn Allegheny Health System. Read our latest issue online.
