The Medical and Scientific Advisors are distinguished Sjögren’s experts from around the world. These healthcare professionals represent a wide spectrum of specialties involved in Sjögren’s diagnosis, treatment and research and work closely with the Foundation to help us meet our mission and goals.
Advisors are responsible for counseling the Sjögren's Foundation on medical and scientific issues and working with the Foundation to advance professional and patient education and accelerate the development of better diagnostic, management and treatment tools in Sjögren’s. In addition to guiding our Research Program by setting research grant priorities and determining awards, Sjögren’s Foundation Medical and Scientific Advisors actively participate in the medical and scientific initiatives led by the Foundation.
The Sjögren’s Foundation frequently partners with companies that are considering, are in the process of developing or have already developed products, diagnostics and therapeutics for Sjögren’s. Through Sjögren’ Foundation Corporate Partnerships, the Foundation can assist companies with a wide range of initiatives, including linking companies with the most relevant key opinion leaders for their needs, medical centers with experienced principal investigators and appropriate Sjögren’s populations, and patients via surveys or focus groups. We also partner on awareness and education initiatives for professionals and the public.
