Accelerate Research

You are at the heart of our commitment to research.

While we get closer to finding a cure, we help you live well with scleroderma, but our ultimate goal is that you live free from scleroderma. Each year, the National Scleroderma Foundation invests $2.3+ million in our peer-reviewed research grant program to discover the cause, understand the mechanism, and overcome scleroderma forever. Because of the generosity of our donors, the National Scleroderma Foundation has been the leading and driving force behind the growth of scleroderma science and the advancement of scleroderma research for decades.
