Clinical Interests

Dr. Rogers cares for patients with a wide variety of rheumatic and autoimmune diseases, but specializes in inflammatory myopathies, lupus and autoimmune related lung diseases. 

Research Summary

    Dr. Rogers' research has focused on examining biomarkers of lupus flare in order to better understand lupus pathobiology.  Along with her collaborators, Drs. Barb Vilen and Teresa Tarrant, she has investigated whether lupus patients exhibit heightened levels of specific proteins from hematopoietic cells and whether this correlates with lupus disease activity.   

    Additionally, Dr. Rogers is a member of the Thurston Arthritis Clinical Trials team and is currently participating in several lupus clinical trials. She also works with Dr. Beth Jonas on several aspects of our Rheumatology educational program for fellows, residents and medical students.
