Fighting sarcoidosis as well as other rare diseases.

Episode 21 Why Sarc is more prevalent in women with Ozioma Chioma PhD

November 9, 2020

Ozioma Chioma is a postdoctoral fellow at Vanderbilt University.  A microbiologist, she is putting her skills to work thanks to a grant from the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research.  Ozi - as she is often called, is looking specifically for a link between hormones in women and sarcoidosis.  Her preliminary findings indicate there is such a link.  This could lead to a cure or at least a better treatment down the road. 


Dr. Chioma will talk about her research, how far they have come and what's next.
