Rheumatology Research: Peter D. Seligman Center for Advanced Therapeutics

Rheumatology Research and Rheumatology Clinical Trials in New York, NY

The Peter D. Seligman Center for Advanced Therapeutics was established in 2003 with the support of a grateful patient to bring state-of-the-art basic research developments to the clinical care of patients. Relocated to CMC upon its opening in 2012, the Center is the Division of Rheumatology’s own contribution to the rapid pace of discovery in molecular medicine and increasing nationwide advocacy programs for rheumatic and autoimmune diseases.
