Researching the Researcher

Ashira Blazer, MD, MSCI

Hospital for Special Surgery

Dr. Blazer explains the meaning of “bench to bedside,” revealing that research and medicine often go hand in hand through a cohesive, translational process.

Discoveries made in the lab can directly impact patient care. Likewise, information about patient care experiences can inform experiments in the lab in real time.

“What I hope to do in rheumatology is change the perspective on how we a). think about genetics and the environment and b.) the people who are able to participate in research.”
