Research Team: Cure JM Program of Excellence in JM Research at Children's Hospital of Chicago Research Center

Dr. Lauren Pachman, the Principle Investigator and Director of the Cure JM Foundation’s "Program of Excellence in Myositis Research", has cared for over 600 children with JDM and other forms of inflammatory myopathy. Her team is working to discover the biomarkers of JM activity to guide the utilization and/or creation of more effective therapies. They have already identified a variety of genetic and environmental factors that not only play a role in the onset of symptoms, but also govern the child's outcome.
