Dr. Teh was the lead investigator of a project entitled “Disease characteristics, health service use and quality of life in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus in different ethnic groups” which was funded by the NHS Research and Development department from October 2000 to September 2005. The final report was published at the R&D website in 2005. Further funding was successfully applied from Lupus UK from October 2005 until September 2008. As a result of this project a Lupus specific health-related quality of life measure for adults, the LupusQoLwas developed. This has been evaluated and in 2006 copyrighted jointly to The University of Central Lancashire and East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust. The LupusQoL Sensitivity Study commenced on 31st January 2011 and is funded by Arthritis Research UK for 30 months.
