"Effector Functions and Cellular Targets of Pathogenic Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cells in Lupus"

2015 LIFELINE Grant Program 

This grant is made possible, in part, by funds provided by the Lupus Foundation of America Greater Ohio Chapter and is presented in memory of Kassie McMullin Biglow.

Trine Jorgensen PhDDr. Jorgensen’s project will investigate how the mechanisms of immune cells called plasmacytoid dendritic cells, found to be elevated in people with lupus, may lead to the development of lupus. Learn more about Dr. Jorgensen's research at Cleveland Clinic.
