Biomarkers in SLE

Description 
Systemic Lupus Erythematous is a complex heterogeneous disease in which the pathogenesis remains poorly understood. The measurement of immune proteins and gene expression in biological samples allows a precision medicine approach in SLE. We host a large contemporary cohort of SLE patients linked to extensive biobanking, providing a rich database for analysis of research questions on clinical outcomes. Thousands of serum samples and peripheral blood mRNA samples are on hand linked to deep clinical annotation, to help solve translational questions in this disease.
