Adam Dore, DO, presented his research abstract, "The Relationship between Lower Limb Osteoarthritis Burden and Risk for Falls: The Johnston County Osteoarthritis Project." Teresa Tarrant, MD, presented, "Validating GPSM3 (G18) as a key regulator of monocyte-driven inflammatory arthritis."

Adam Dore, DO, a recent graduate of the Rheumatology Fellowship Program at the Thurston Arthritis Research Center (TARC) and Division of Rheumatology, Allergy and Immunology, had the opportunity to attend the 2014 American College of Rheumatology Research Workshop in Seattle, Washington. 

Dr. Dore presented his research abstract, The Relationship between Lower Limb Osteoarthritis Burden and Risk for Falls: The Johnston County Osteoarthritis Project.

The workshop was coordinated by the Rheumatology Research Foundation (RRF) and the American College of Rheumatology's Early Career Investigator Subcommittee along with TARC Assistant Professor Amanda Nelson, MD, MSCR.

The event featured lectures focusing on advancing a career in academic rheumatology. Participants collaborated with fellows, young investigators, and well-established rheumatologists from across the country. The workshop was held in conjunction with the Rheumatology Research Foundation Investigators Meeting, where TARC Assistant Professor Teresa Tarrant, MD, and other prominent national researchers in inflammatory arthritis presented their work to colleagues and stakeholders of the Foundation.  

Dr. Tarrant's work, "Validating GPSM3 (G18) as a key regulator of monocyte-driven inflammatory arthritis," was additionally highlighted by the RRF at the select Shareholder's meeting with the Industry Roundtable. The RRF is the largest private funding source of rheumatology research and training programs in the United States. On average, more than 90 cents of every dollar donated is invested in Foundation programs.
