Live Discussion
Dr. Mark Gourley will answer questions about Understanding Auto-antibodies Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 2pm ET.

Ever since the discovery of myositis-specific and myositis-associated auto-antibodies several years ago, scientists have been finding ways to use individual disease profiles to prescribe treatment and predict risks. Dr. Mark Gourley is a rheumatologist in Washington, DC, with a long-time connection with the myositis studies at the National Institutes of Health, and a member of TMA’s medical advisory board. He has co-authored many studies on the inflammatory myopathies.
