After two years of virtual meetings, the SRF’s Science Workshop returned as an in-person event! This past weekend, over 50 clinicians and scientists gathered in San Francisco to discuss innovations in scleroderma research. This annual meeting convenes our Scientific Advisors, funded investigators, applicants, outside experts, and industry partners for an intensive two days of evaluation, discussion, brainstorming, and collaboration.
Current investigators and invited new applicants present their research projects and progress to the Scientific Advisory Board and other attendees. After completion of the workshop, the Scientific Advisory Board members provide guidance for SRF’s research committee to make funding decisions for new and continuing projects, ensuring that we continue to invest in the most promising research.
