Dr. Arkin has collaborated with pediatric rheumatologists and dermatologists to help standardize the care of pediatric patients with cutaneous manifestations of lupus. UW-Madison currently houses the largest registry of pediatric patients with discoid lupus in the world, and the team is mining this data to help define the phenotypic spectrum of this disease, biomarkers, and risk factors for evolving systemic disease.

Dr. Arkin's work has been funded by the Pediatric Dermatology Research Alliance, the Childhood Arthritis & Rheumatology Research Alliance, the Sturge Weber Foundation, and the University of Wisconsin.
