Section of Clinical Sciences

Welcome to the Section of Clinical Sciences (SCS) in the Division of Rheumatology, Immunology and Allergy at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, led by Dr. Daniel Solomon. Our mission is to determine the causes of rheumatic disease and to develop and test innovative prevention and treatment strategies. Examples of our research areas of interest includes research in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), orthopaedics, pain in the inflammatory diseases, quality of care, as well as drug safety of disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs). Investigators in this group lead several ongoing clinical trials.

We are located in the state-of-the-art Hale Building for Transformative Medicine, which brings together the world's finest clinicians and scientists to accelerate breakthroughs and transform patient care in the neurosciences, orthopaedics, rheumatology, immunology, and musculoskeletal health. By putting investigators and caregivers together in one location, we aim to accelerate the translation of research into advances in the precision and personalization of patient care.
