The Sarcoidosis Research Program at the University of California, San Francisco was founded in the fall of 2009. Our mission is to improve the lives of patients with sarcoidosis through clinical and translational research.

Specifically, we are performing research to:

1. Improve our understanding of the how the immune system is working in sarcoidosis

3. Identify ways to predict disease progression or remission

4. Understand how sarcoidosis affects different organ systems
