Speaker credentials
Michelle Ormseth is Assistant Professor in the Vanderbilt Division of Rheumatology and Immunology. She came to Vanderbilt for clinical rheumatology fellowship training in 2009 and extended her training with a research fellowship focusing on cardiovascular disease in patients with rheumatic diseases. More recently she has studied small RNAs as markers and mediators of disease. In this area she has used machine learning methods to develop sRNA panels for rheumatoid arthritis classification and atherosclerosis risk assessment. She was the first to characterize circulating microbial sRNAs in the patients with RA and is studying their significance and potential impact on disease. In the area of cardiovascular disease her work has focused on non-traditional risk factors in patients with RA and lupus and repurposing drugs to reduce cardiovascular risk and inflammation in patients with rheumatic disease. She currently has a VA career development award to study the role of HDL in microRNA transport in RA.
