Stephen Joseph Balevic
Assistant Professor of Pediatrics

I am an Adult and Pediatric Rheumatologist and care for patients with a wide variety of autoimmune and rheumatic diseases, including: systemic lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile arthritis, vasculitis, and sarcoidosis, among others. I have a special interest in using musculoskeletal ultrasound to optimize diagnosis and treatment decisions at the bedside.

I am also a clinical researcher at the Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI). My research interests are in clinical trials and precision medicine through population pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic modeling. I obtained my PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the UNC Eshelman School of Pharmacy. I serve as the principal investigator on several grants studying hydroxychloroquine and azathioprine pharmacokinetics and exposure-response in lupus, as well as principal investigator or co-investigator for several clinical trials at the DCRI. Additionally, I am an Assistant Scientific Director for the Childhood Arthritis and Rheumatology Research Alliance (CARRA) Registry- the largest registry of children with rheumatic diseases in North America.
