The Foundation

The Rheumatology Research Foundation is a charitable organization dedicated to advancing treatment for patients living with rheumatic disease.

Funding Research

We award grants to scientists conducting innovative research that will lead to a future with more options for patients with rheumatic disease to live longer, healthier lives.

Advancing Treatment

Our programs fund training and mentorship opportunities for medical students and fellows to assist in the recruitment and education of future rheumatologists. We are committed to expanding the workforce in order to provide patients with better access to specially trained rheumatology professionals.
