Peng Liu, PhD has received a National Institutes of Health National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases R01 five year grant. She will receive $333,000 per year to fund the project titled: Differential Regulation of Autoimmune Arthritis by Monocyte Subsets. Monocytes have been shown to play a critical role in the inflammatory processes in rheumatoid arthritis. This work will define the differential function of the monocyte subsets to promote or inhibit tissue inflammation and advance the understanding of the pathophysiology of autoimmune diseases.
