Jessica Neely, MD

Dr. Neely is a pediatric rheumatologist who studies a rare pediatric condition known as juvenile dermatomyositis using multi-modal single cell technologies of biological samples collected from her patients. Her research seeks to identify novel treatment targets and biomarkers for this condition to develop precision medicine approaches to care. Her work also seeks to better understand the immune dysregulation that leads to juvenile dermatomyositis.
