Research Interests for Patients

My research interests are primarily focused on investigating the cause of systemic lupus erythematosus, an autoimmune disease that can affect every organ system in the body. My research program has three parts: 1) the study of genes that contribute to the development of lupus in order to understand how they do this as this may lead to new treatments, 2) the study of markers in the blood and urine that may indicate how a person with lupus is responding to treatment or predict when they are going to have a flare so that their treatment can be optimized, and 3) the study of first-degree relatives (parents, siblings, children) of people with lupus to identify factors that lead to the development of lupus so that we can prevent it.

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.
