How BRI Can Help You
Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason (BRI) is an international leader in immune system and autoimmune disease research translating discoveries to real life applications. BRI is one of the few research institutes in the world dedicated to finding causes and cures to eliminate autoimmune diseases including Type 1 diabetes, arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, scleroderma and many others.
Much of our emphasis is on solving the puzzle of autoimmune conditions by unlocking the mysteries of the immune system. Our medical research investigating diseases at genetic and molecular levels is being translated into understanding how these approaches can be applied to patients and at-risk individuals. We are now using these therapies and discoveries in clinical research and trials to bring new medical advances to people at the earliest opportunity.
