Jointly Appointed, Epidemiology

Dr. Lim received his undergraduate education at Duke University with a B.A. in Chemistry and his medical degree from the State University of New York at Brooklyn. He did his internal medicine training and rheumatology fellowship at Emory and remained on as faculty since 2002. He also has a MPH in epidemiology from the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory.

His main interest is outcomes and epidemiology of systemic lupus erythematosus. He is the PI of several grants, the largest of which is the CDC-funded Georgia Lupus Registry. This population-based registry will more accurately determine the prevalence and incidence of lupus in Atlanta. He is the director and primary clinician of the Grady Lupus Clinic, where over 400 patients are treated.
