Office Location


Dr. Eric Zollars completed his MD/PhD through the combined MSTP program at UCLA/Caltech where he pursued research in biophysics.  His internal medicine residency was at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.  A fellowship in rheumatology at Johns Hopkins with a specialty in lupus followed.

His research is focussed on better clinical measures of lupus disease activity and treatment.  He has used techniques including genomics, MRI and ultrasound leading to novel descriptors of disease activity in lupus.  He has also lead clinical trials investigating new therapies for lupus.
