Affiliated Faculty and NIH Institutes

The NIAMS has longstanding partnerships with other institutes at the NIH where research related to rheumatology is taking place. A joint program in the autoinflammatory disease is run in collaboration with Dan Kastner's group in the with the National Institute of Human Genome Sciences (NHGRI). Collaborations with the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) on the pathogenesis and treatment of lupus nephritis have been ongoing for many years, and studies on the pathogenesis of inflammatory muscle disease are ongoing in collaboration with the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Storke (NINDS) and the National Institute of Enviromental Health Sciences(NIEHS).

Fellows and advanced trainees are also encouraged to look for faculty mentorship outside the NIAMS as their interests dictate, and there are labs in many other Institutes at the NIH whose research touches on autoimmunity, inflammation and rheumatic disease.

Links to other laboratories of interest are listed below, and prospective fellows also should explore the resources listed in the NIH Research Community page for other possible mentors or co-mentors.
