Dr. Lindsey Criswell of the University of California, San Francisco discusses advances in the search for genes believed responsible for lupus, including advances made possible by genome-wide scans that now allow researchers to look at thousands of genes at a time.  Dr. Criswell shares data from several studies and provides a glimpse into the future on how these data might be helpful in treating lupus.
