Dr. Ann Clarke is a Professor in the Division of Rheumatology in the Department of Medicine at the University of Calgary and holds The Arthritis Society Chair. She is an established investigator in the epidemiology, economics, and outcomes of rheumatic diseases, particularly systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). She is just transitioning from McGill University in Montreal where she was the co-director of the McGill University Health Centre Lupus Clinic, one of the largest such clinics in North America.

Dr. Clarke is Vice 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 standardized measures for lupus disease activity, damage, patient assessment, and outcome analysis and has participated in several major cohort studies on cardiovascular and neuropsychiatric outcomes in SLE. Through numerous national and international collaborations, her research team has assembled the largest-ever international SLE cohort and provided the most definitive evidence on the association between SLE and malignancy.
