Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr. Ardalan's academic focus is in outcomes research in multiple clinical populations, including juvenile dermatomyositis, juvenile scleroderma, and pediatric cutaneous lupus. He takes a special interest in patient-reported outcomes research. He also has methodological interests in psychometrics, qualitative research, health disparities, and health services research, applying these approaches to the aforementioned clinical populations.

Juvenile Idiopathic Inflammatory Myositis (including dermatomyositis, polymyositis, immune-mediated necrotizing myopathy, and overlap syndromes). Also has clinical focus in juvenile localized scleroderma, juvenile systemic sclerosis, and pediatric cutaneous lupus.

Dr. Ardalan is interested in clinical and patient-reported outcomes in pediatric rheumatic diseases, with an emphasis on juvenile myositis, localized and systemic scleroderma, and cutaneous lupus. His work has encompassed validation of PROMIS in children with myositis, longitudinal evaluation of physical function in juvenile myositis, analyses of predictors of quality of life in pediatric localized scleroderma, psychometric assessment of quality of life instruments in pediatric localized scleroderma, and qualitative studies of the impact that localized scleroderma has on children's lives. He has also examined inpatient healthcare utilization among adults and children with dermatomyositis, prevalence of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular risk factors and comorbidities in juvenile dermatomyositis, outcomes in pediatric discoid lupus, and gender/racial/ethnic differences in outcomes of pediatric localized scleroderma patients.
