This initiative aims to establish digital products, personnel and processes to support research teams. Dr. Joshi’s project, “Abatacept for the Treatment of Common Variable Immunodeficiency With Interstitial Lung Disease (ABCVILD),” will investigate the efficacy of abatacept compared to placebo for treatment of patients with granulomatous and lymphocytic interstitial lung disease (GLILD) in the context of common variable immunodeficiency (CVID), as assessed quantitatively by radiologic imaging. With this award, Dr. Joshi will decrease in-hospital visits and reduce the burden to participation.
