Program areas at SRF

The mission of the Scleroderma Research Foundation (SRF) is to find, fund, and facilitate the most promising, highest-quality research to cure scleroderma. We recruit the best and the brightest researchers to understand the causes, discover treatments, and ultimately eradicate this disease . At the SRF, research is at the center of all we do. Our Research Program is governed by the Board of Directors and supported by a volunteer Scientific Advisory Board comprised of some of the world's most highly regarded scientists who are leaders in their field of expertise. The Board of Directors and Scientific Advisors meet annually with researchers and clinicians from laboratories across the nation to select and fund the most promising scleroderma studies aimed at developing improved therapies to help patients live longer, fuller lives - and, ultimately, to find a cure for scleroderma.
SRF Education & Awareness Program: Many patients hear the word scleroderma for the first time when they are diagnosed.We strive to raise awareness and provide educational resources because lack of awareness about scleroderma often causes delays in treatment or misdiagnosis. As an innovator in scleroderma research, the SRF is uniquely qualified to provide those living with this disease, the medical community, and the general public with the most up-to-date and relevant news and information about complications, treatments, and related research through our website, webinars, annual patient forum, and monthly eNewsletter. And we deliver stories of impact that connect and inspire patients, as well as address issues related to diversity, equity, and inclusion that patients may encounter as they navigate diagnosis, treatment, and living with the disease.
The SRF Research Program: Led by a Scientific Advisory Board comprised of some of the most highly regarded scientists in the nation, the SRFs research program actively seeks out and recruits experts from the fields of rheumatology, immunology, genetics, and fibrosis, as well as, experts in cutting-edge technologies to join the scleroderma research community. With an intense focus on identifying projects and investigators likely to move scleroderma research forward, the SRF funds a diverse portfolio of projects led by top-tier investigators.
