Rheum4Science Module 2 - Toll-Like Receptors in Rheumatic Disease


Expires Jan 31, 2022

Program Information

Rheumatologists need a solid understanding of the immune system in order to understand the pathology of rheumatic diseases and drug mechanisms of action. The creation of Rheum4Science modules grew out of the conviction that the teaching of science is declining in rheumatology. Rheum4Science is designed to teach the underlying biology and clinical research methodology necessary for the knowledgeable practice of rheumatology. This basic and clinical science curriculum is designed as a series of online case-based modules that can be used by trainees or practitioners working independently or with a faculty mentor.

Target Audience
Rheum4Science modules are targeted to rheumatology fellows in training, medical students, residents, practicing rheumatologists, and other rheumatology health care providers (ACR/ARP members) interested in strengthening their understanding of basic scientific principles and clinical research methodology relevant to the field of rheumatology.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Recognize cellular pattern receptors’ role in maintaining homeostasis

  • List the important toll-like receptors and their cellular location and ligands

  • Identify key TLR signaling pathways

  • Outline important disorders linked to activation of TLRs and to TLR mutations


Registration Fees

Registration is complimentary.

System Requirements

The ACR recommends that participants access and navigate the Rheum4Science modules in Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer. See full System Requirements.
