About me

Dr Helen Benham divides her time between clinical practice as a rheumatologist at Princess Alexandria Hospital and translational research into rheumatic diseases. The focus of her continuing research is the study of pre-clinical Rheumatoid Arthritis, to understand the relationships between genetics and environment in the development of RA, evaluate and explore hypotheses regarding disease initiation, develop predictive models of disease, evaluate pre-clinical interventions and novel immunomodulation including antigen-specific therapy. Additionally she has a strong interest in implementation science and the translation of research findings into practice, particularily in the field of rheumatology.
