Dr. Clarke is the Chair of the Systemic Lupus International Collaborating Clinics (SLICC), a group of world-renowned lupus investigators. As such, she has contributed to the development of the SLICC Classification Criteria for SLE that are more clinically relevant than the previous criteria, and are now accepted for identifying patients for trials and observational research. She has contributed to an international task force (Definition of Remission in SLE: DORIS) that is re-defining optimal management strategies in SLE. Through numerous national and international collaborations, her research team has assembled the largest-ever international SLE cohort and provided the first definitive evidence on the association between SLE and malignancy.
