Fall 2017 Lupus Mini-Conference: Lupus and Pregnancy
Saturday, December 2, 2017 | 11 am - 4 pm | Stanford Medical School Office Building
Lupus and Pregnancy | Keynote: Yashaar Chaichian, M.D.
Dr. Chaichian specializes in the diagnosis and management of all rheumatic diseases. As Director of the Stanford Lupus Clinic, he has a particular clinical and research interest in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). He has a secondary interest in connective tissue disease-associated interstitial lung disease. He is involved in a translational SLE research study at Stanford that seeks to identify novel means of risk-stratifying patients through the use of immune profiling.
Under the guidance of Dr. Mark Genovese, and in collaboration with Dr. Matthew Baker, he will be helping direct several upcoming clinical trials in SLE. He works closely with Dr. Julia Simard on epidemiologic research in lupus, including an interest in pregnancy outcomes in this patient population. Lastly, with Dr. Maurice Druzin of the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, he has co-developed a multidisciplinary conference that focuses on the diagnostic and treatment approach to pregnancy in women with underlying connective tissue diseases.
Additional Speakers: Tzielan Lee, MD and Patient Panel
Dr. Tzielan Lee of Stanford Pediatric Rheumatology will speak following Dr. Chaichian (topic TBD). A panel of lupus patients who have gone through or considered pregnancy will share their experiences.
