We at the Rush Vasculitis Clinic are dedicated to excellence in the care of patients suffering from different types of vasculitis. However, this is made possible by all the medical research striving to find a cure for vasculitis. Although academic grants fund some of our research, we still rely heavily on donations and gifts from grateful patients and their family members to help us in our fight against vasculitis. Your contribution plays an essential role in keeping us going. Please consider making a gift to the Rush Vasculitis Clinic.
Research in Vasculitis at Rush
We believe that research is a vital aspect of patient care. Without basic and clinical research, discoveries of new diagnostic tools, improved and less toxic therapies and the search for cure would not be possible. At the Rush Vasculitis Clinic we are dedicated to excellence in patient care and to the advancement of knowledge and treatment in vasculitis. We focus our research on understanding the differences in disease manifestations and treatment response among patients of different ethnic backgrounds, the genetic predisposition leading to increased vasculitis susceptibility and severity, and the development of novel therapies.
