Profile of:

Paras Karmacharya


My clinical and research interests include psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA). The mission of my clinical and research program is to improve outcomes in SpA by developing better treatment strategies for SpA, and to understand the factors affecting therapy outcomes in SpA. As a result of my post-doctoral MSK research training and Master of Science training in Clinical and Translational Sciences, I am proficient in the use of large databases, designing and performing longitudinal studies with primary data sources, and outlining clinical and treatment heterogeneity in different patient subgroups using machine learning methods. I have received the Medical and Pediatric Resident Research Award as a resident and the Philip S. Hench Award 2020 for Outstanding Achievement as a Rheumatology fellow. I have also received research grants from Spondyloarthritis Research and Treatment Network (SPARTAN), Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis (GRAPPA), and Assessment of spondyloarthritis international society (ASAS) to understand how chronic conditions influence the risk and outcomes in spondyloarthritis.
