Application Deadline: February 1, 2018

Grant Guidelines 

The application receipt deadline is February 1, 2018. The grant funding period is July 1 through June 30 

Grants will be awarded in amounts ranging between $15,000 and $50,000 a year for two years, depending on satisfactory progress. A human study that reviewers deem to be the most innovative project will be eligible for a $50,000 grant. All investigators will submit a budget for $35,000 and revise the budget once an award offer is accepted.

SSF research grants are open to basic and clinical scientists holding an advanced degree (MD, DDS, DMD, or PhD) at any U.S. university or research institution. Both junior and senior investigators may apply. For physicians, advanced clinical training in a specialty related to Sjögren’s, such as rheumatology or ophthalmology, is desirable.

“Every day research is being conducted to unveil new medications, therapies and diagnostic tools for Sjögren’s and its symptoms.  By participating in a clinical trial, you will be helping to potentially uncover breakthroughs that will help Sjögren’s patients worldwide.”  Steven Taylor, SSF CEO

Thank you for your interest in learning more about Sjögren’s clinical trials. We encourage you to learn more about what is involved in a clinical trial and ask as many questions as you want before entering one.

Clinical trials are designed to add to medical knowledge and most importantly, the results of these trials can make a difference in the care and treatment of Sjögren’s patients.

The SSF is fully committed to the development of new therapeutics that will treat the entire disease, not just one symptom. The following links will provide you additional knowledge about clinical trials, what's involved and what to expect:
