We were saddened to learn that Dr. Noel R. Rose, a pioneer in the field of autoimmunity and a former GDATF Board member, recently passed away at his home in Brookline, MA. His research on Hashimoto's disease dates back to the 1950s at the University of Buffalo School of medicine. In 1985, Dr. Rose co-authored “The Autoimmune Diseases”, the first textbook to focus collectively on all of the autoimmune conditions, addressing the underlying connections between seemingly disparate conditions such as Graves' disease, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and vitiligo. In 1991, Dr. Rose and Virginia T. Ladd founded the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association.
