Information for Referring Providers

Clinical Interests for Referring Providers
I am interested in all inflammatory and autoimmune rheumatic diseases, with a particular interest in systemic lupus erythematosus.

Research Interest for Referring Providers
Dr. Boackle is interested in the etiology and pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), with the long-term goal of developing new targeted therapies for this disease. She is currently investigating the role of complement receptor 2 as a lupus susceptibility gene in humans, and is studying the functional effects of gene variants that have been associated with disease. She is also studying first-degree relatives of individuals with lupus to evaluate genetic and environmental factors that lead to the development of this disease. Finally, she is working to identify biomarkers that serve as surrogate markers for lupus disease activity to guide the treatment of individuals with SLE.
