Dr. Ram Raj Singh is Director of Basic and Translational Research at the University of California Los Angeles David Geffen School of Medicine. He also is a recipient of several lupus medical research grants from the Lupus Foundation of America's National Research Program. The LFA research program supports studies that seek to identify the causes of lupus and provide insight into new ways to treat various manifestations of the disease.

Dr. Singh presented data during the Ninth International Congress on Lupus regarding research his laboratory is conducting on dendritic cells, which serve as a key regulator in the immune system. One part of Dr. Singh's research has been to determine ways that dendritic cell migration can be modulated to suppress autoimmune inflammation using models of lupus dermatitis. The findings from Dr. Singh's studies can provide clues into the possible causes of lupus skin disease.
