A University of Chicago Medical School graduate, Dr. Pachman received their Distinguished Service Award, the University Alumnae Professional Achievement Award as well as the national award for Clinical Research from the American College of Rheumatology, among others. The author of over 150 peer-reviewed full length scientific publications, Dr. Pachman directs her translational research team who are members of the Cure JM Program of Excellence in JM Research at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. The “frequent flyer” clinic’s comprehensive and coordinated care is supported by a multidisciplinary team of nurses, physical therapists, social workers and pediatric rheumatologists. Dr. Pachman’s team is developing and standardizing new ways to monitor symptoms and signs of disease activity while they are engaged in NIH-sponsored advanced molecular studies of the myositis process.
