The SSF is proud of the work it funds and would like to announce the 2012-2013 Research Grant Recipients with everyone.
For almost 20 years, the Sjögren's Syndrome Foundation has been the premiere organization in Sjögren's research funding. Promoting innovative research that will have the greatest impact on the lives of those who have this prevalent and devastating disease. Currently the SSF funds more than $275,000 a year for research projects, marking a 250% increase in funds over the last five years.
The SSF is focused on many research initiatives to fulfill our mission including: the development of Clinical Practice Guidelines, the launching of a Clinical Trials Consortium, advocacy among federal research entities, and through the SSF Research Grants Program!
The SSF recognizes that we cannot make major progress until we find a more definitive and easier way to diagnose Sjögren’s. Better diagnostics is an important part of the Foundation’s 5-Year Breakthrough Goal: “To shorten the time to diagnose Sjögren’s by 50% in 5 years!”
Thank you for your support!
