The SRF webinar series is designed to help patients and others in the scleroderma community understand the disease, what’s being done to find a cure and what new treatments are on the horizon. The next session will be led by Dr. Francesco Boin, with the Johns Hopkins Scleroderma Center of Excellence.

Dr. Francesco Boin, is Director, Scleroderma Center Translational Research and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Johns Hopkins. He is an integral part of the team serving patients at the Hopkins Scleroderma Center. Dr. Boin received his M.D. degree from the University of Padova Medical School (Italy). He completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at the Mayo Clinic (Rochester, Minnesota) and a post-doctoral fellowship in clinical and experimental rheumatology at Johns Hopkins University.

Dr. Boin is interested in translational research: studies that apply basic research technology directly to study patients’ clinical disease.

Dr. Boin’s research focuses on the cellular biology of immune cells and the mechanisms of autoimmunity in scleroderma. His goal is to identify reliable laboratory tools that can help investigate the causes of scleroderma, effectively measure disease activity, monitor treatments and help predict clinical outcomes in scleroderma patients.
