Judith F. Ashouri



Dr. Judith Ashouri is a rheumatologist who specializes in caring for patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), an autoimmune disease that causes joint inflammation and may damage tissues and organs throughout the body.

Ashouri's research focuses on CD4 T cells, immune cells that play a key role in RA progression. She uses a unique tool to identify and characterize T cell receptors, which facilitate activation of CD4 T cells, in models of both mouse and human RA, with the goal of better understanding these processes and ultimately discovering new RA therapies.

Ashouri earned her medical degree at UCSF. She completed a residency in internal medicine at Stanford University School of Medicine, then returned to UCSF to complete a fellowship in rheumatology.

Ashouri has published several papers detailing her research, and she has received awards for scholarship, research and teaching.

    First time for Care Provider (CP) to try and describe a new approach to my treatment which included new medication with strict parameters to meet with corresponding labs. My mental acuity was not at prime and it was alot for me to grasp. CP repeated and responded to my questions well and then reassured me that she would set up all the steps to be taken In MY CHART Visit summary and Instructions which was very reassuring to me.
