What immunometabolism teaches about lupus, with guests Andras Perl, MD, PhD, and Marlene Marte, MD, on Upstate's The Informed Patient podcast

Researchers probe how lupus develops and persists

A branch of biology called immunometabolism is starting to help scientists and physicians to understand lupus -- why the most common and serious form of this disease develops or persists. Explaining what they are learning about how lupus develops are Upstate's Andras Perl, MD, PhD, and Marlene Marte, MD. Perl is a Distinguished Professor of Medicine and also the chief of rheumatology. Marte is in her second year of fellowship training in rheumatology.
