Dr. Christadoss has been studying the immunopathogenesis of myasthenia gravis (MG) for more than 3 decades. At present he is studying the complement RNAi in the therapy of animal model of MG and plans to perform translational studies in human MG in collaboration with Immune Globe, LLC and Duke University. The complement RNAi therapy will be applied in the animal model of rheumatoid arthritis as well. He is also developing biomarkers for MG.
