Felipe Andrade MD, PhD

Division of Rheumatology, Department of Medicine, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD

Dr. Andrade is Associate Professor of Medicine in the Division of Rheumatology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore. He received his medical degree from the National Autonomous University of Mexico, Internal Medicine training at the National Medical Center and fellowship in rheumatology at the National Institute of Medical Sciences and Nutrition, both in Mexico City. He obtained his PhD from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Andrade has a long-standing interest in mechanisms implicated in the generation of self-antigens, connecting killing effector pathways activated by pathogens with the production of autoantigens by dying target cells.

In his work with Dr. Max Konig,, they identified Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans leukotoxin A as a driver of neutrophil hypercitrullination in periodontitis, linking Aa to the immunopathogenesis of RA (Konig MF et al. Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans-induced hypercitrullination links periodontal infection to autoimmunity in rheumatoid arthritis. Sci Transl Med. 2016;8(369):369ra176. doi:10.1126/scitranslmed.aaj1921).
