Our Rheumatology faculty participate in the annual American College of Rheumatology (ACR) conference. The ACR conference brings together researchers in rheumatology and immunology, along with industry leaders, to discuss the emerging science behind the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of rheumatic diseases. 

Here, we highlight the achievements of our faculty by showcasing their accepted posters and oral presentations.

Names bolded below are our past and current fellows that worked on these projects.
