The Rheumatology Research Foundation focuses on two mission priorities:

  1. Workforce Expansion – Ensuring there are enough rheumatology professionals to meet the growing demand for patient care, the Foundation’s awards portfolio is designed to attract and train a larger workforce of rheumatologists, nurses, therapists, and other rheumatology professionals to provide quality care to individuals with rheumatic conditions.
  2. Accelerating Discoveries – After going through a rigorous peer review process by the Foundation’s Scientific Advisory Council, funds are awarded to scientists conducting innovative research that will lead to a future with more options for patients, and ultimately a cure.
