Research

The ACR research agenda has been developed by the ACR Committee on Research with input from members, and is designed to comprehensively address important areas for research in rheumatic diseases including the need for new technology, infrastructure, and increased funding.

New Forum: Rheuminations on Research Careers

We are pleased to announce a new virtual series, Rheuminations on Research Careers. Built to provide facilitated discussion around research career challenges and opportunities to network with peers, these engaging discussions are targeted to trainees transitioning into faculty and faculty within 10 years of training. Each session will be interactive, with facilitators posing questions for small group breakout sessions.

These virtual sessions are complimentary, but registration is required. All ACR/ARP members are invited to join the discussion.
