Chandra Mohan, M.D., Ph.D.

Chandra Mohan, M.D., Ph.D.
Walter M. and Helen D. Bader Professor in Arthritis and Autoimmune Disease Research
Director, NIH Center of Research Translation (CORT) in Lupus
UT Southwestern

Dr. Chandra Mohan’s research efforts focus on elucidating the cellular, molecular, and genetic players leading to murine lupus, with corresponding translational studies in human lupus. His more recent work has focused on translating findings from basic biology towards therapeutic manipulation of lupus, and early diagnosis of renal involvement in this disease. Dr. Mohan’s ongoing studies are aimed at tapping leads from various OMIC platforms to mine new biomarkers in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) and related autoimmune diseases.

Dr. Mohan has published over 120 articles and is the principal investigator on three active NIH RO1 grants and one NIH P50 center grant.

Following his medical training in pathology and rheumatology at the National University of Singapore, Singapore, Dr. Mohan undertook his doctoral thesis work focusing on the cellular immunology of lupus at Tufts University, Boston. His post-doctoral training focused on the genetic analysis of murine lupus.


After attending this activity, participants will be able to understand::

  1. How the following "OMICs" platforms – Genomics, Transcriptomics, Proteomics, Metabolomics – are transforming the science of medicine
  2. how various "OMICs" platforms are advancing what we currently know about systemic lupus erythematosus


Albert Einstein College of Medicine designates this educational activity for a maximum of 1 credit towards the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award. Each physician should claim only those credits that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
