The REF Awards and Grants program exists to train and develop rheumatologists and rheumatology health professionals and nurture novel research ideas for the future. The awards are designed to select the best in each niche of rheumatology, foster their ideas, and prepare them for larger awards and grants from other institutions to sustain their long-term careers. This formula has allowed the REF to develop as the second largest funding source of rheumatology training and research in the U.S., funding more than $5 million annually through our core awards and grants program.
Through this program, the REF ushers in tomorrow's rheumatologists and rheumatology health professionals.
