The overall goal of this study is to define the phenotype of Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The investigators hypothesize that there are common elements between other forms of ILD such as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and sub-clinical RA-ILD that places individuals at risk for the development of lung disease.

This is not a treatment study. It is a protocol designed to enroll individuals affected by RA and explore associated lung disease so that the investigators can better understand the clinical phenotype and genetic and molecular endotypes of this disease.
