About

  • Biography icon plus

    Professor Graham Hughes trained in London, then New York, where he was a pupil of Dr Charles Christian. In 1971 he set up a lupus clinic and lupus pregnancy clinic at Hammersmith Hospital in London. In 1985 he moved with his team to St Thomas' Hospital, London, where he established the Louise Coote Lupus Unit, Europe's first 'dedicated' lupus clinic.

    Professor Hughes has an international reputation both as a clinician and as a teacher, but also for his research work in lupus, with over 900 published papers and several textbooks. In 1983 Graham Hughes described the 'antiphospholipid syndrome' - now known as Hughes syndrome. In 1992, Professor Hughes and his team received the highest award in international rheumatology, the ILAR prize (International League Against Rheumatism) for their work in this field.

    Professor Hughes is Founder and Editor of the international journal 'LUPUS' and is on the Editorial Board of over 30 Medical Journals. He is a member of the American Lupus Hall of Fame, and is Life President of the lupus patients' charity Lupus UK.

    In 2001, Professor Hughes was awarded Doctor Honoris Causa in the University of Marseille, and in 2004 he was awarded Doctor Honoris Causa, in the University of Barcelona.

    Professor Hughes and his team have over the years contributed to changing lupus from a dreaded, often fatal and little understood disease to one where patients can look forward to leading a normal life.
