Through its disease targeted research program, the Rheumatology Research Foundation is committed to funding innovative research that will impact patient care. Outcomes from these grants will lead to new insights into the etiology, pathogenesis and treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and related autoinflammatory diseases. Investigators will have the opportunity to explore extremely novel ideas within a high-risk, high-reward funding model.
DISEASE TARGETED RESEARCH PILOT GRANT
These smaller, pilot grants provide seed funds to scientists with novel ideas. This allows investigators to gather preliminary data to determine whether a greater investment is needed in their research idea or if they should change direction in order to maximize outcomes.
DISEASE TARGETED INNOVATIVE RESEARCH GRANT
These larger, two-year grants provide funds to scientists who need to conduct additional testing on promising research ideas that are supported by preliminary data. This research may ultimately lead to critical discoveries and major advancements in the understanding and treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and other autoinflammatory diseases.
