The Sjögren’s Foundation strives to foster research that will have the greatest potential impact on Sjögren’s patients. An important way in which the Foundation strives for change is to promote innovative research that will have the greatest impact on the lives of those who have this prevalent and devastating disease.

The Sjögren’s Foundation Research Grants Program places a high priority on both clinical and basic scientific research into the cause, prevention, detection, treatment, and cure for Sjögren’s, with opportunities open to both junior and senior-level investigators.

We are now accepting grant applications for FY22. All application materials are due February 1, 2022.
