John H. Stone
John Stone has had a career-long interest in teaching, research, and clinical care of patients with rheumatic diseases. His work has focused on the systemic vasculitides and, more recently, on IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD). Following medical school at Harvard Medical School, internal medicine training at Johns Hopkins, and a rheumatology fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco, Dr. Stone cofounded and directed the Vasculitis Center at Johns Hopkins University in his first faculty position. In 2008, Dr. Stone was recruited to become the Director of clinical rheumatology at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), where he has continued his interest in vasculitis but broadened his interest to include the full breadth of rheumatology. Dr. Stone served as the Deputy Editor for Rheumatology at UpToDate for one year and remains the Section Editor for Vasculitis. Dr. Stone’s major current research interest pertains to an emerging disease, IgG4-RD. His group at the MGH reported several new disease associations with IgG4-RD, including lymphoplasmacytic thoracic aortitis, eosinophilic angiocentric fibrosis, and Riedel’s thyroiditis. Dr. Stone has lectured on his work in the United States, Europe, and Asia. He gave the Sir James Cameron Lecture at the Royal College of Physicians (Edinburgh) in 2003, the Dunlop-Dottridge Lecture at the Canadian Rheumatology Association (2007), and the Woodbury Lecture at Dalhousie University in 2010, and the Cogen Lecture at Maine Medical Center in 2011. Since 2002, he has conducted either “Meet the Professor” or “Curbside Consultation” sessions each year at the American College of Rheumatology meetings.
