Leading Scleroderma Research Scientists Launch
Novel Worldwide Research Forum

Advances in Scleroderma Research - Global Webinar
A series of virtual meetings open to the global community of scleroderma researchers

ResearchImageBar.jpgThis new virtual forum provides a venue to bring together the global scleroderma research community to hear the latest breakthroughs from the field. Each session will feature recent discoveries and high impact publications related to all aspects of scleroderma science.

The purpose of this webinar is to provide the most exciting and recent research advances to the global scleroderma research community in real time. It is vital that we take advantage of the facility we all gained with virtual meetings and virtual information sharing during the pandemic.

The goal of the Advances in Scleroderma Research - Global Webinar is to rapidly disseminate knowledge by promoting awareness of new advances, fostering new collaborations, creating new networks, encouraging early-stage investigators, and inspiring interested learners.
