About Benaroya Reseach Institute at Virginia Mason:
Type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus. These are a just a few of more than 80 autoimmune diseases that affect one in 20 Americans and cost an estimated $20 billion a year in medical care.
While many autoimmune diseases are little known, they all have a common cause: The immune system - which is designed to protect the body against infection - attacks the body's healthy tissue instead.
Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason (BRI), located in Seattle, Washington, is a worldwide leader in autoimmune disease research. BRI's teams of world-renowned scientists work every day to develop therapies to reverse the effects of autoimmune diseases - and to eliminate them altogether.
Today, these scientists are making great headway in unlocking the mysteries of the immune system and solving the puzzle of autoimmune diseases.
