Academic Interests

Dr. Reid specializes in rheumatology. Her clinic cares for patients with an array of rheumatic conditions and autoimmune diseases. In particular, she is developing a clinic to evaluate and manage patients who suffer from adverse events secondary to cancer immunotherapy agents. Checkpoint inhibitors are types of cancer immunotherapy agents that harness patients’ own immune systems to combat their cancers. However, the use of these agents can sometimes lead to side effects called immune-related adverse events (irAEs) that are akin to autoimmune diseases. Dr. Reid is working to better diagnose and treat patients with irAEs. Her work also includes research in pharmacogenomics (how patients’ genetics affect their response to medications) and its impact on patient care within rheumatology.

She has published in Clinical Rheumatology, Journal of Immunotherapy and American Journal of Kidney Diseases. She is the recipient of the Arnold P. Gold Humanism and Excellence in Teaching Award and has received support from the Institution of Translational Medicine at the University of Chicago.
