Lorinda Chung MD MS

Rheumatologist, Immunologist

Bio:   Dr. Chung is an Associate Professor of Medicine (Immunology and Rheumatology) and Dermatology at Stanford University School of Medicine. Dr. Chung initiated and developed the Stanford Scleroderma Center of Excellence which focuses on three major goals: 1) To provide outstanding, comprehensive, multi-disciplinary care for patients with systemic sclerosis and related diseases; 2) To maintain a detailed clinical database and biorepository of SSc tissue samples to perform collaborative epidemiological and translational studies; 3) To conduct industry-sponsored and investigator-initiated clinical trials of novel therapeutic agents for the treatment of SSc. The Scleroderma Center has grown dramatically since its conception, and Dr. Chung now leads a team of over 15 clinicians and researchers focused on SSc patient care and research. Dr. Chung has a vast amount of experience in SSc clinical trial design and enrollment, and has completed five investigator-initiated clinical trials, all of which included collaborative translational studies to better understand the mechanism of action of novel agents in the SSc population.
