AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Can we develop better diagnostic testing for autoimmune diseases?

The process of diagnosis for autoimmune disease is often prolonged and difficult. Current testing (e.g. ANA test) is often not well-correlated with the disease status and can impede diagnosis. A longitudinal study could be done with this data set to look for other biomarkers that might be better correlated with disease state, facilitating early diagnosis.
