Current grant recipients dedicated to RA research

Since ANRF began awarding research grants, more than 50 of the nearly 190 projects have been focused on rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Among all other arthritis and related autoimmune disease-funded projects, the number of RA projects is the most of any single disease, indicating the interest in studying and researching this disease and the continuing promise of improving treatments and dedication to seeking a cure. In the 2021-22 ANRF Cohort of Scholars, five of the 18 scientists developing their ideas are focused on RA:

Susan MacLauchlan, Ph.D., Brigham and Women’s Hospital

“Mechanisms by which clonal hematopoiesis augments inflammation and atherosclerosis in rheumatoid arthritis”

Renuka Nayak, M.D., Ph.D., University of California, San Francisco

“Elucidating mechanisms of methotrexate metabolism by the human microbiome in rheumatoid arthritis”

Nisarg Shah, Ph.D., University of California, San Diego

“Microparticle-assisted modulation of regulatory T cells in rheumatoid arthritis”

Anil Singh, Ph.D., Washington State University

“Molecular reprogramming of Rheumatoid arthritis synovial fibroblasts by interleukin 6”

Hu Zeng, Ph.D., Mayo Clinic

“Immune checkpoint inhibition induced inflammatory arthritis correlates with imbalance between T cell exhaustion and senescence”
