Career Development Research Awards 

Dr. Mara Becker with a rheumatology researcher and patient with rheumatic disease.Establishing a productive research career in rheumatology is largely dependent upon the availability of major research funding.

Increasing concerns over the decline in federal funding for rheumatology research have forced many investigators to reconsider their careers, which leads to fewer researchers making important discoveries necessary to advance treatments and find cures.

The Career Development Research Awards are designed to encourage early and mid-career investigators to continue vital research into the cause, prevention and treatment of rheumatic diseases.
