The Division of Rheumatology, Immunology and Allergy at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) has one of the largest research funding bases and investigative teams of any rheumatology and allergy program in the country. Our researchers’ discoveries in pre-clinical and clinical research into rheumatic and allergic diseases have impacted the practice of rheumatology and allergy and continue to improve the prognosis for patients.
Researchers in the Division are investigating the underlying mechanisms of inflammatory and immune disorders and developing groundbreaking approaches to prevention and treatment. Focused centers in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), lupus, and asthma and allergic diseases at BWH facilitate interaction between basic science and clinical research.
Our Building for Transformative Medicine brings together research, clinical care, and education to accelerate the translation of research into advances in the precision and personalization of patient care. It features eight floors of research space, including basic, clinical and translational research, patient information and consent rooms for clinical trials, and an advanced imaging suite.
