Our Support to Research

Encourage and support scleroderma research
in B.C. and Canada

SABC funds and co-leads a Genome Research Study in B.C. that began recruiting scleroderma patients in 2017.  This research program is creating a firm foundation for intensive research to control lung and skin damage in patients with scleroderma. SABC has contributed over $240,000 in donations to date.

In addition to research being undertaken in B.C., there are several research consortiums in Canada involved in studies focused on scleroderma that SABC supports:

  • Canadian Scleroderma Research Group, under the directorship of
    Dr. Murray Baron. The CSRG maintains a key database of scleroderma patient information used by scleroderma researchers of many disciplines.
  • Scleroderma Research Group of the Centre Hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal (SRG-CHUM) by Dr. Jean-Luc Senécal and his team.
  • Hamilton Scleroderma Group (HSG), St Joseph’s Healthcare McMaster University
  • Scleroderma Patient Intervention Network (SPIN)
