Innovative research for advanced care.

Scleroderma is a progressive autoimmune disease that can cause stiffening and scarring of the skin, lungs, kidneys, blood vessels and other organs. Our program pursues intensive basic and clinical research to advance the treatment of scleroderma. Our work requires the collaboration of many specialists, including rheumatology, pulmonary, dermatology, cardiology, nephrology, gastroenterology and plastic surgery.
