Functional genomics of autoimmune disease associated genetic variants.

As a rheumatologist, I have been exposed to a mysterious clinical course of patients. A person who was fine yesterday develops joint pain, which spreads to systemic arthritis. Behind this, there must be a complex and ever-changing interaction between genetic polymorphisms and the environment. At JAX, I want to disentangle the fundamental rules governing such interactions one by one, since such an accumulation of efforts will lead to the future treatment of each patient.
