Dr. Hani El-Gabalawy is a Professor of Medicine and Immunology at the University of Manitoba, and a senior clinician-scientist at the Arthritis Centre and the Manitoba Centre for Proteomics and Systems Biology. He has held the Endowed Rheumatology Research Chair since its establishment in 2003. From 1997-2000 he was a visiting scientist at the National Institute of Musculoskeletal Health and Arthritis (NIAMS) in Bethesda, MD. From 2013-2017, he served as the Scientific Director of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Institute for Musculoskeletal Health and Arthritis.

Dr. El-Gabalawy’s research interests have centered around the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and the mechanisms that initiate and sustain this prevalent autoimmune disease. To address translational research questions in this area, he and his colleagues established a unique cohort of Indigenous North Americans who are at increased risk for future RA development based on having a strong family history of autoimmunity. Using an established framework for Community Based Participatory Research, this large cohort has been followed systematically for almost 20 years, and individuals who developed RA were compared to those who did not. Using a spectrum of state-of-the-art proteomic, cellular, and transcriptomic approaches, ongoing studies have revealed important insights into the origins of RA autoimmunity, and the mechanisms by which the autoimmunity matures and become pathological, ultimately resulting in the onset of chronic joint and systemic inflammation.

Supported by ongoing and uninterrupted funding from the CIHR, Dr El-Gabalawy and his colleagues are now undertaking groundbreaking clinical trials using anti-inflammatory/immunomodulatory nutritional supplements to modulate the risk of future RA development, while gaining an understanding of how the underlying pathological processes can be modulated and monitored.
