Principal Investigator

Massimo Gadina, Ph.D.

Dr. Gadina is exploring immune-mediated diseases with a particular emphasis on the biology of cytokines, their relative signaling pathways and has an keen interest in the role of JAK inhibitors in the treatment of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.

The Office of Science and Technology (OST) is responsible for NIAMS Labs core facilities. It provides and develops new technologies, advises the Scientific Director, Lab and Branch Chiefs, and other key officials on science and technology. OST initiates collaborative, cooperative and service activities that facilitate the conduct of science and coordinates the core technological facilities of the Intramural Research Program.

We strive to provide you with the best possible and most up-to-date instrumentation, and to guide and train you to take advantage of our instruments and technologies so you can get the most out of your experiments.
