Approved Research

Deciphering of the casual genetic relationships between rheumatoid arthritis and varying comorbidities

Principal Investigator: Professor Gregory Livshits
Approved Research ID: 85194
Approval date: August 25th 2022

Lay summary

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), a debilitating autoimmune condition is associated with several accompanying ailments. RA and its accompanying diseases appear to have genetic components. We aim to find the shared genetic architecture involved between RA and its shared diseases, so that we can hopefully clarify the shared pathway involved in the development of RA and its shared diseases. The future of medicine is precision medicine, and by clarifying the genetic profile of RA, we hope to advance therapeutic targets that may aid in treating or targeting RA development.
